Montevallo Cash Store Makes An 
Announcement Of New Policy 

J. A. Thomas Proposes 60-Cent Fee 
For Privilege Of Buy¬ 
ing Liquor 


J. A. Thomas, vvhq resides at 201 
May Street, Montgomery, has a 
plan to solve the liquor legalization 
question, and the problem of raising 
revenue to keep the public schools 
open, at one and the same time. 
The plan, proposed by Mr. Thomas 
in a letter to The Advertiser, is 
simply to require the buyer of li¬ 
quor, wine or beer to obtain a li¬ 
cense, as well as the seller. 

‘‘We are just now expecting the 
passage of some kind of law for 
legalizing and taxing the sale of 
whiskey, wine and beer which is a 
very good measure, in view of the 
fact that it is now being sold all 
over the State and no revenue be¬ 
ing collected thereon,"Mr. Thomas 
writes. “Now what I want to sug¬ 
gest is that there be a license placed 
on all buyers of such wet goods, 
say a fee of 60 cents for everyone 
desiring to be allowed to buy it." 

He then proposes that of this 60 
cent fee, 10 cents should go to the 
Probate Judge for issuing the li¬ 
cense, the State to get 25 cents if 
the buyer lives in an incorporated 
town or city that helps to support 
the schools, the town or city get¬ 
ting 25 cents in that event. The 
city’s share would be divided on 
the basis of 10 cents to the police 
department for enforcement pur¬ 
poses and 15 cents to the schools in 
the city. Where the buyer lives in 
a rural district, the whole remaining 
5Q cents would go to the State for 
school purposes, and the State 
would also be required to use for 
the same purpose, its 25 cents share 
of the city buyer’s license fee. 

On conviction of being drunk, a 
buyer would have his license sus¬ 
pended for a specified period of 
time, the period of suspension be¬ 
ing increased by subsequent of¬ 
fenses. It would be made a viola¬ 
tion of the revenue law for any li¬ 
censed buyer to buy liquor, wine or 
beer for an unlicensed user; the 
offender would have his license sus¬ 
pended and the unlicensed user be 
subject to a fine, but the licensed 
buyer would be permitted to buy 
and carry home wet goods for the 
use of his family. 

A licensed seller would be made 
liable for a fine of $50 with costs 
added, for selling to an unlicensed 
buyer; the seller being given the 
right to demand that he be shown 
the license of the buyer before sell¬ 
ing to him, and also to require the 
buyer’s signature tor comparison 
with that appearing on, the license. 
Such a license as he proposed be 
required of buyers is now required 
by law to be obtained by all drivers 
oi automobiles and other motor ve¬ 
hicles, Mr. Thomas points out, 
and the arrangement Is working out 
satisfactorily. “If this kind of a 
measure is adopted,” he maintains, 
“It will be the means of bringing 
in to the schools plenty of money 
for their operation and will not 
work a hardship on anyone.” 

Such a measure as he proposes, 
Mr. Thomas concludes, “should 
have the full support of every man 
and woman in the State of Alabama 
who has the interest of the schools 
and the children of the State at 
heart. This suggestion is offered, 
not as a burlesque, but in all seri¬ 
ousness and the writer honestly and 
candidly believes that it is one of 
the very best moves that could be 
made for the benefit of the young 
and rising generation. While I do 
not drink whiskey, I am perfectly 
ready to apply for a buyer’s license 
if there was such a thing to be had; 
and while I do not love whisky, I 
do love children and schools. So 
let’s get busy and get this law pass¬ 
ed so that our children can have 
the best of schools.” .

According to announcement made 
by the management this week, 
henceforth the Montevallo Cash 
Store will be strictly and absolutely 
what its name implies—a store that 
sells merchandise for cash only 
And this interesting feature is em 
phasized also: that is selling strict 
ly for cash, the Montevallo Cash' 
Store will offer prices lower than 
the average, thereby saving money 
to those who trade there. 

In announcing a change in man¬ 
agement at the store this week, Mr 
R. W. Taylor said: “We want to 
thank our friends and customers 
for their patronage and support in 
the past. As we change managers 
at our store ,we have determined 
also to change the policy of our 
business, whereby, in the future, 
we will sell for cash only, and at 
the same time give our customrs 
the advantage of prices lower than 
you can obtain anywhere else. 

“We invite every person who 
buys groceries and meats in Monte 
vallo to check our prices against 
any other place. Then bring the 
cash, buy at Montevallo Cash Store 
and you will have the pleasure of 
counting the money you saved in 
your pocket.” 

Continuing his discussion of the 
future policies of business, Mr. 

Taylor said, “It is a proven fact 
that any store which sells on credit 
has to account for losses. Usually 
this is done by a margin of higher 
prices, whereby every customer that 
buys at a credit store is taxed to 
take care of the accounts of other 
customers who will not pay their 
bills. We will not do this at Mon 
tevallo Cash Store. We will sell 
for cash only—which means no 
charges and no losses in accounts. 
Consequently, when you trade here, 
you will not he paying hightr prices 
to take .care of the other fellow’s 
bill. But you will be paying lower 
prices and saving the difference in 
cash in your own pocket.” 

Mr. Floyd Irvin, of Clanton, who 
has been with the Taylor Stores 
as manager for more than a year, 
has succjcedcd Myi Hammett as 
manager of the Montevallo Cash 
Store. Mr. Irvin is an experienced 
groceryman, who has made friends 
wherever he has done business. He 
invites the people of Montvallo to 
visit the store and compare the low 
prices offered with any other place 
in the vicinity. 

“Read the big advertisement of 
Montevallo Cash Store in this pa 
per. which will prove what we claim 
about lower prices,” Mr. Irvin said, 

Prosperity Underesti¬ 
mated Says Dawes 

Chicago, Jan. 2.—Former Vice- 
President Charles G. Dawes, who 
predicted the end of the depression 
two years ago, said today that pros¬ 
perity was here with greater poten¬ 
tialities “than we are inclined to 
predict or to feel.” 

The noted banker and statesman 
said in an extemporaneous talk be¬ 
fore two score prominent Chicago¬ 
ans at a breakfast meeting: 

“The extent of returned prosper¬ 
ity is being underestimated.” 

His conclusion, he explained, fol¬ 
lowed extension of the study which 
prompted his prediction in Decem¬ 
ber, 1934. He superimposed a chart 
of the business course since 1929 on 
those of the depressions which be¬ 
gan in 1873 and 1893. 

“There is going to be a greater 
activity in exchanges of goods than 
we are inclined to predict or to feel 
— and these things are largely a 
matter of feeling,” he said. 

State Paves 691 
Miles In Two Years 


More Than 40 Per Cent Of Ala¬ 
bama Highways Are Now 
Hard Surfaced 

Alabama has paved 691 miles of 
highways in the last two years, 
bringing the total paved mileage to 
2,668, which is estimated to be 41 
per cent of the total highway mile¬ 

The construction program for 
1937, under plans prepared by the 
State-Wide planning Board, calls 
for hard surfacing 1,921 miles, 3,- 
,251 miles of gravel road and 222 
miles of earth construction, at an 
estimated cost of $121,500,000, ex¬ 
clusive of necessary bridges and 
drainage. Only a small per cent of 
this will be built this year. 

The January review of the Daily 
Construction Record, Baltimore, 
gives an analysis of highway con¬ 
struction in the South in 1935-36 
and the 1937 program. Alabama 
figures are: Expenditures, 1935-36: 
construction, $9,118,251; mainte¬ 
nance, $1,928,097; purchase of equip¬ 
ment, $562,914; interest and retire¬ 
ment of bonds, $2,474,986. Total 

Estimate for 1937: Total expendi¬ 
tures, $9,071,446 apportioned, in 
part, administration, $300,000; con¬ 
struction, $2,200,000; regular fede¬ 
ral aid, $836,064; contingencies 
$300,000. Miles to be constructed: 
Concrete, 62; bituminous, 629; grav¬ 
el, chert, sand-clay, etc., 463; grad¬ 
ing and drainage, 77. 

The plannig board estimates there 
are 61,118 miles of roads in Ala¬ 
bama, of which 6,470 miles are state

the mother of Mrs. F. H. Hardy, 
of the Montevallo High School fa¬ 

Rev. Capers Satterlee, Rector of 
St. Andrews Church, Birmingham, 
will conduct the services at the 
Episcopal Church Sunday morning 
at eleven o’clock. 


Mr. J. R. Gilbert was a visitor to 
the Magic City Monday. 

Members of the Church of Christ 
meet every Sunday at 10:0O a.m., 
in the American Legion Hut. You 
are cordially invited. Communion 
every Sunday. 

Gilbert’s Haberdashery will soon 
be disconnected from the Monte¬ 
vallo Cleaners and Dyers, and will 
occupy a handsome new location of 
its own, in the Wilson Building at 
the rear of Wilson Drug Company, 
The building is now being made 
ready for occupancy by Gilbert's. 
New fixtures are to be installed, 
and every detail arranged to make 
the place one of the most attractive 
stores in Montevallo. 

Within a few days, Mr. L. D. 
Gilbert, proprietor of Gilbert’s Hab¬ 
erdashery and Montevallo Clean' 
ers and Dyers will be ready to 
throw open the doors of his new 
place to the public. His plans for 
the future will enable him to render 
to his customrs a large ad more ef¬ 
ficient service in both lines of his 

Montevallo Cleaners and Dyers 
will continue to operate at the 
same location heretofore occupied 

by them. Gilbert’s Haberdashery, 
that part of the business offering 
merchandise for sale, will move out 
to the new place. 

At the new location, which will 
be a complete store in every respect 
so far as selling wearing apparel 
is concerned, Mr. Gilbert will have 
a much larger and more varied 
stock of standard, nationally ad¬ 
vertised merchandise for men's 
wear. And it will likely not be 
confined to things for men. Mr, 
Gilbert indicated that he has plans 
to include many items that will be 
attractive to the ladies. 

“I am not ready to discuss my 
plans further at this time,” he said 
Thursday. “I am too busy making 
plans and working out the neces 
sary details. But you may tell the 
folks around here that I am making 
arrangements that will interest 
them, and they may listen Tor my 
opening announcement which will 
be forthcoming in a short While." 

There are many reasons why you 
will find “Theodora Goes Wild,” 
which begins Sunday and Monday, 
at the Strand Theatre, gay, im¬ 
peccable entertainment, but above 
all is the revelation of Irene Dunne 
as a glamorous, captivating co¬ 
medienne. Many believed Miss 
Dunne commanded such versality 
but few dared believe that she 
could be so completely charming, so 
deftly subtle as a light comedy ar¬ 

For her first feature-length laugh 
riot, Columbia production chiefs 
were shrewd iir selecting a vehicle 
which allows the star full reign in 
displaying talents never before dis¬ 
closed. “Theodora Goes Wild" has 
the flavor of “It Happened One 
Night” plus the delightful nonsense 
of “My Man Godfrey.” Its action is 
fast, punctuated with rich directoral 
touches of Richard Boleslawski. 

Until she writes several sophisti¬ 
cated novels under a nom-de-plume 
for her own amusement, which un¬ 
expectedly leap into the best selling 
class overnight, Miss Dunne is just 
a small town nobody whose most 
notable achievement is playing the 
church organ. Despite the fact that 
the world is clamoring for a look 
at the woman-of-the-world author, 
her publishers refuse to disclose 
played to a turn by Melvyn Douglas 
her true identity. It is the happy- 
go-lucky illustrator of her books, 
who finally discovers her secret 
and realizes that her every move is 
a pose. He follows her to her 
home town and it is not long before 
they have fallen in love. When Miss 
Dunne openly shouts this fact to 
her neighbors, the illustrator disap¬ 
pears. Forced to take matters into 
her own hands, the star deliberately 
follows him to Manhattan and, de¬ 
signing her approach from the 
pages of her own novels, partici¬ 
pates in a series of adventures that 
finally bring the young man to his 

Miss Dunne’s transformation 
from the kitten-like girl to the so¬ 
phisticate is a superb portrayal, and 
Melvyn Douglas, playing opposite 
the star, likewise delivers an out¬ 
standing performance. 

The supporting cast is exception¬ 
ally strong, with the fine perform¬ 
ances being given by Rosalind Keith 

Leona Maricle, Thomas Mitchell, 
Elizabeth Risdon, Margaret Mc- 
Wade, Spring Byington, Thurston 
Hall, Nana Bryant, Henry Kolker, 
Sarah Edwards, Robert Greig, Mary 
McLaren and others. 

Director Richard Boleslawski has 
treated his story with perfect un¬ 
derstanding, combining a delightful 
romance with down-to-earth com¬ 
edy, and Columbia has given the 
picture a splendid mounting. 

“Theodora Goes Wild” was writ¬ 
ten for the screen by Sidney Buch- 
jnan, from an original story by 
Mary McCarthy.

The Mayor of Wilton, Mr. C. O. 
Arant, while in Montevallo Tues¬ 
day, said the contractor for the con¬ 
struction of the Wilton waterworks 
system, is now moving his equip¬ 
ment to the job, and expects to 
begin operations by Friday of this 
week. The first step, he said, will 
be digging ditches preparatory to 
laying the water mains. 

Succesful bidder for the water¬ 
works system, Mr. Arant said, was 
the, firm of W. L. Coston and Sons, 

of Bessemer. The contract, amount 

is $22,245.00. Contract for the erec¬ 
tion of the tank for the water sys¬ 
tem was let to the Chicago Bridge 
and. Iron Company, of Birmingham, 
for $3,655. 

The source of Wilton’s water sup¬ 
ply will be the big spring on Cas- 
sie Fancher’s place, about a mile 
from town. The tank will be erect¬ 
ed on the Woolley property about 
half a mile from the spring, and 
about 2,000 feet from the Town of 

Mayor Arant said the watef sys¬ 
tem will include a chlorinating ma¬ 
chine, but that no filtration will be 
needed because of the purity of 
the water at its source. 

“This improvement,” said the 
Mayor, “will be a wonderful ad¬ 
vantage and convenience to the 
people of Wilton. In addition, our 
town will have excellent fire protec¬ 
tion facilities. We will have 
enough fire plugs to insure reason¬ 
able protection to every residence 
and building in Wilton, which fact 
we look forward to, both as to saf¬ 
ety of property and lives, as well 
as to a great saving in fire insu¬ 
rance rates.” 

The Civic Club held its first meet¬ 
ing of the year Wednesday, with the 
new president, Luther Shaw, pre¬ 

Mr. and Mrs. Doc Vale have mov¬ 
ed to Wilton. The barbecue stand, 
operated by them, is to undergo a 
renovation soon. Improvements 
will be made in the building where¬

Events the World Over 

Bru Plans Settlement of Cuban Debts to Americans—■ 
Roosevelt Says Federal Government Should End 
Child Labor and Starvation Wages. 


© Western Newspaper Union. 


Laredo Bru 

new president of Cuba, proposes 
to settle all Cuban 
obligations in the 
United States and is 
expected soon to in- 
|| vite the bankers and 
If bondholders con- 
|| cerned to enter 
|| negotiations to that 
end. Credit for in- 
I ducing Bru to do 
this is given to Col. 
Fulgencio Batista, 
who appears to be 
largely in control of 
affairs in the island. 
The obligations include about $75,- 
000,000 owed to many Americans 
■who invested in public work gold 
bonds which were issued during the 
administration of President Gerar¬ 
do Machado. 

The new constitution which the 
Cuban congress recently voted orig¬ 
inally prohibited any such negotia¬ 
tions as those contemplated before 
1940, but when it appeared in the of¬ 
ficial gazette that article had been 
radically altered. It now orders the 
government to find a satisfactory 
way to settle all debts to the United 
States before 1940 and authorizes 
the president to open negotiations 

This “error” in the gazette’s com¬ 
posing room is supposed to have 
been ordered by Colonel Batista, 
and though congress has the power 
to correct it, a majority of con¬ 
gressmen, after reading the arti¬ 
cle in the gazette, gave it their 
approval. So President Bru, it 
seems, is free to go ahead with the 

tpLIMINATION of child labor, 
■*-* long working hours and starva¬ 
tion wages is a necessity, and must 
be carried out by the federal gov¬ 
ernment since it cannot be done by 
state action. So declared President 
Roosevelt in his press conference. 
He warned the correspondents not 
to say he was planning to revive 
the NRA and insisted all he could 
say at present was that something 
should be done to fix maximum 
hours and minimum wages. 

Since the day of the NRA, said 
Mr. Roosevelt, there has been a 
• steady decline in child labor, gruel¬ 
ing hours and starvation wages by 
90 per cent of American business. 
As for the other 10 per cent, he 
said, they were still failing to live 
up to the best standards since the 
death of the NRA. 

Attorneys for the American Fed¬ 
eration of Labor were reported to 
be about ready to submit to the 
President a bill designed to restore 
labor protective features lost in the 
death of NRA. It provides that 
congress catalogue unfair “con¬ 
duct” which would be forbidden to 
employers and assure workers 
adequate protection. Violations 
would be punishable by a fine. The 
federation is expected to back fed¬ 
eral licensing of interstate corpora¬ 
tions as provided by the O’Mahoney 

T OM BERRY, before retiring 
from the governorship of South 
Dakota, appointed Herbert Hitch¬ 
cock of Mitchell, S. D., to fill out 
the term of the late Senator Peter 
Norbeck. The new senator is Demo¬ 
cratic state chairman and his ap¬ 
pointment brings the Democratic 
membership in the senate to 76, 
the highest party total in history. 
The Republicans now number 16. 

Mr. Hitchcock was born in Ma- 
quoketa, la., in 1867 and was edu¬ 
cated at Anamosa, Davenport and 
Chicago. He went to Mitchell in 
1894 and was admitted to the bar 
two years later. He was presi¬ 
dent of the school board in his home 
town for ten years and state’s at¬ 
torney four years. He served as 
state senator in 1909, 1911, and 1929. 

A S NEBRASKA’S unicameral 
legislature, unique in the Unit¬ 
ed States, was about to begin its 
first session, Gov. R. L. Cochran de¬ 
clared politics was out. He dis¬ 
couraged party caucuses among the 
members and said he would have 
no spokesman in the, legislature. 

The governor pointed out that the 
constitution provides that the one- 
house chamber shall be non-parti¬ 
san and that the voters had done 
their part by electing, on a non-poli¬ 
tical ticket 22 Democrats and 21 
Republicans. He said he would con¬ 
tinue personally and as governor, 
all measures for new forms of tax¬ 

C'lNANCIAL status of American 
* farmers may be much improved, 
as reports of governmental agen¬ 
cies say, but some of them still ap¬ 
pear to need a lot of help. Sena¬ 
tor F. Ryan Duffy of Wisconsin 
asked federal officials to allot $10,- 
000,000 to aid the Wisconsin farm¬ 
ers who are suffering from the ef¬ 
fects of the drouth. „ 

“This would be $200 per farm,” 
he said, “and considering the high 
price of hay and other items of feed, 
it would be difficult to make a 
smaller sum cover the needs which 

would develop during the winter 

Duffy estimated 40,000 ttf 50,000 
Wisconsin farmers would need as¬ 
sistance in purchasing live stock 
this winter. He said at least 35,000 
farmers in the drouth area and 
from 10,000 to 15,000 outside the 
drouth districts were in need of aid. 
In addition, he said, between 30,000 
and 40,000 farmers would need gov 
ernment aid in purchasing seed for 
the 1937 crop. 

OVERNMENT officials, from 
'-J the President down, were anx- 
ious to prevent the export of Amer¬ 
ican airplanes to Spain, license for 
which was given perforce by the 
State department to Robert Cuse, 
a Jersey City airplane broker. Cuse 
proposes to send $2,777,000 worth 
of planes to the Spanish loyalists, 
and his action was criticized in 
Washington as “legal but unpatri¬ 
otic.” Senator Key Pittman of Ne¬ 
vada, chairman of the foreign rela¬ 
tions committee, assailed the Cuse 
deal as improper and dangerous 
and said it might embarrass not 
only the United States but also other 
nations in their efforts to enforce 
the hands off policy toward the 
Spanish war. Congress may be 
able to rush through prohibitive 
legislation before the planes are 
shipped. Meantime pressure was 
being brought to bear on Cuse to 
cancel the deal. 

W HEN the German steamer 
Palos was captured by Span¬ 
ish loyalists at Bilbao because it 
carried war munitions supposedly 
destined for the Franco forces, the 
Berlin government demanded its 
release under .threat of reprisal. 

The Basque authorities, when the 
German cruiser, Koenigsberg, ar¬ 
rived at Bilbao, let the Palos go, 
but held on to the cargo and to one 
Spanish citizen who was a passen¬ 
ger. This did not satisfy the com¬ 
mander of the cruiser who insisted 
the cargo and the Spaniard must 
be released. The authorities defi¬ 
antly refused this, and several more 
German warships were ordered to 
the Bilbao sector. 

There was a report in Berlin that 
Hitler had been advised by Mus¬ 
solini to withdraw as gracefully as 
possible from the Spanish embrog- 
lio, and that II Duce himself had 
decided to cease supporting Franco 
and the insurgents. 

It was believed Hitler would avoid 
war measures in this crisis, and 
both Great Britain and France were 
hopeful that he would preserve 
peace because they have offered to 
help his economic and colonial 
needs in return for nonintervention 
in the Spanish conflict. However, 
informed German sources said the 
Anglo-French note sent Christmas, 
urging a cessation of German vol¬ 
unteer enlistments for Spain had 
come too late, and that Germany 
will permit and even encourage a 
continuance of such enlistments. 

C HIANG KAI - SHEK, generalis¬ 
simo of China and its dictator, 
is back in Nanking. Marshal Chang, 
who held him prisoner in Sianfu for 
two weeks, also is 
in the Nationalist 
capital, avowedly 
repentant and ready 
to submit to any 
punishment The 
danger of civil war 
has passed for the 
time. The terms on 
which Chang re¬ 
leased Chiang have 
not been made pub- 
_ „ lie. The dictator is- 

’ Vi Soon S sued a statement, 

directed to his kidnaper, commend¬ 
ing his change of heart and promis¬ 
ing to use his influence to obtain 
leniency for him; and Chang also 
gave out a statement admitting his 
grievous fault. 

These developments would seem 
to have quieted down the Oriental 
situation, but there is another mat¬ 
ter that threatens continued trouble. 
This is the prospect that Chiang 
may decide to confine his attention 
largely to military affairs and to 
make Dr. T. V. Soong, his brother- 
in-law, premier. Soong, who used 
to be minister of finance, stands 
high among those who favor a 
strong foreign policy, including re¬ 
sistance to further encroachments 
by Japan. Therefore it is easy to 
see that his elevation to the pre¬ 
miership would greatly annoy To- 
kio and might easily bring about an 
open break between the two na¬ 
tions. Since Marshal Chang is one 
of those demanding war with Japan, 
it is rumored that the appointment 
of Soong was the specified reward 
for his release of Chiang and sub¬ 
mission to discipline.

Arthur Brisbane 

Lord Nuffield English, is a gen¬ 
erous giver; his automobile manu¬ 
facturing makes it possible. He 
gave $10,000,000 to the University 
of Oxford, has established a trust 
of $10,000,000 for his employees, and 
has given $10,000,000 to the British 
government “to help the needy.” 
His giving in the past eleven years 
amounts to about thirty-seven mil¬ 
lion dollars. 

If Lord Nuffield were to multiply 
his gifts by ten, he would still be 
far from the giving record of our 
home-grown John D. Rockefeller; 
also, he would be surprised to know 
how much prosperous Americans 
contribute to their government “for 
the needy” in the form of income 

The governor of Pennsylvania 
spent three days carefully investi¬ 
gating illegal coal mining and sell¬ 
ing by idle workers, “bootlegging” 
property of coal corporations, sell¬ 
ing more than thirty million dollars’ 
worth of “stolen” coal each year. 
At the end of his investigation, the 
governor “took action,” but of a 
kind that probably will surprise 
mine owners. 

He ordered the arrest of four ex¬ 
ecutives of the Philadelphia & Read¬ 
ing Coal & Iron company, accus¬ 
ing them of involuntary man¬ 
slaughter in connection with a coal 
mine disaster three years ago that 
killed thirteen. The officials and 
company are accused of employing 
eighty-five men in a mine section 
on which only seventy-five could 
be legally employed. An explosion 
killed thirteen. Mine owners with 
grievances will think carefully be¬ 
fore calling on Gov. Earle again. 

There are twenty-seven murder¬ 
ers in the death house at Sing Sing 
prison, nearly all boys or very 
young men. Six of the twenty-seven 
young ruffians, of assorted races 
and religions—three of them un¬ 
der twenty-one years of age—sur¬ 
rounded a defenseless man, mur¬ 
dered him in cold blood to get a 
few dollars, all in subway nickels. 
Governor Lehman of New York is 
urged to pardon the six murderers, 
some because they are young, some 
because they did not fire that fatal 
shot. The governor replied he ought 
not to pardon any murderer under 
twenty-one years of age, because “I 
frankly see no difference in the guilt 
of the man who is twenty-two and 
one who is twenty.” 

The “big shot” gangsters hire 
men, usually very young and well 
supplied with drugs, to do their 
killing for them. It would be too 
easy for these employers of killers 
if they could take boys from sixteen 
to twenty and guarantee them, “in 
the first place, they won’t catch 
you; in the second place, if they 
do, they can’t execute you; we’ll get 
you acquitted or get you out of 

Murder has become a “business,” 
and businesslike murders must be 
made dangerous. 

Suggestions for Lloyd's insurance. 
In the United States, where some 
business is rather timid, accident

terminate accident policies when 
the beneficiaries reach the age of 

Yet, at that age, men are often

The British Lloyd’s might find a 
good field in a selected list of United

would be no hardship on American 
companies, since they do not want

Mexico plans to establish 2,000 
new primary public schools, in the 
coming year, having established 3,-

Representatives of the Catholic

bership 95 per cent of Mexico’s pop¬

ly to the kind of education alleged 
to be offered to Mexican children. 

France figures up a deficit of four 
thousand three hundred and thirty- 
six million francs; divide that by 
twenty-five, and you find that it is 
just “chicken feed” in dollars. In 
this country, $133,000,000 is no defi¬ 
cit, only petty cash.

Washington.—The Capital city has 
returned to normalcy. It is not the 
normalcy of Janu- 
Back to ary> 1935 , or the 
Normalcy years immediately 
preceding, but the 
normalcy of the year in which that 
quadrennial spectacle, an inaugu¬ 
ration of a President, takes place. 
But Washington’s normalcy is a con¬ 
dition that comes in cycles and it 
matters not how the wheel of life 
turns, those who are resident here 
get used to it and of necessity they 
take the condition in regular stride, 

That sounds like Washington resi¬ 
dents are blase. And they are to a 
greater extent than residents of 
most cities. But paradoxical as it 
may seem, native Washingtonians 
and a certain percentage of those 
in the political field become so ex¬ 
cited that they lose all sense of pro¬ 
portion on occasions such as an in¬ 
auguration ceremony. The answer 
seems to be personal vanity—a de¬ 
sire to be “out in front” and to 
“show off” by having important 
places in parades and having their 
names and pictures in the newspa¬ 

But there is another side of this 
Washington normalcy: It is the side 
of the political powers who have 
little concern about the District of 
Columbia as such or what goes on 
therein unless those affairs strength¬ 
en the position these political pow¬ 
ers hold among their constituencies 
“back home.” 

Hence, under the dome of the 
great Capitol’ building, there is all 
the activity of a bee hive. The 
old timers among the legislators 
have learned to proceed with cau¬ 
tion and to develop their plans slow¬ 
ly, but the newer members of the 
house and senate are all agog, each 
one with his own pet idea for saving 
the nation; each one with a varying 
conviction about his own im¬ 
portance as a member of the na¬ 
tional legislature, and each one de¬ 
termined not to overlook a single 
opportunity to show the folks back 
home that their representative or 
their senator has become a national 

Then through the corridors, the 
halls, committee rooms and offices 
there are the hurrying feet of news¬ 
paper correspondents, representa¬ 
tives of this interest o. - that, mes¬ 
sengers and lowly members of the 
Capitol’s vast staff of carpenters, 
cleaners and chore workers. They 
are, of course, important only as 
they make the Capitol habitable but 
they are an inescapable part of the 
picture—of Washington normalcy. 

• ♦ • 

“Downtown” Washington has an¬ 
other picture. In the executive de- 
... . partments, in the 

All Is bureaus, commis- 

Activity sions and agen¬ 

cies of w h, i c h 
scores have come into being under 
the Roosevelt New Deal, there is in¬ 
tense activity. Policy makers of 

these various units make plans, 
study, confer, propose or reject 
ideas for consideration of the new 
congress and the administration 
heads. These fellows are less con¬ 
cerned about the folks back home 
than are the legislators. Their chief 
concern usually is perpetuation of 
their jobs, development of their 
units or agencies into places of such 
importance that the country cannot 
do without them. Theirs is a per¬ 
sonal interest hardly less to be con¬ 
demned than that of the self-seeking 

On top of all of these—the gov¬ 
ernmental activities of the govern¬ 
ment — there is still another nor¬ 
malcy in Washington. It is the so¬ 
cial side. Of course, all Washing¬ 
ton society springs and has its being 
in White House reflection. From 
the great mansion at 1600 Pennsyl¬ 
vania avenue, there radiates every 
kind and condition of a social en¬ 
gagement. Outstanding among 
these obviously after the inaugura¬ 
tion of a President is the Chief Ex¬ 
ecutive’s dinner to his cabinet. A 
reception to the Supreme Court of 
the United States and the other 
members of the judiciary follows. 
In rapid order come receptions to 
the legislators, to the al-my, navy 
and marine corps, to the foreign 
diplomats resident here and all of 
these are interspersed with smaller 
official dinners in the great state 
dining room at the White House. 

In various sections of the city and 
in the hotels dinners, receptions, 
cocktail parties continue in cease¬ 
less chains. And if the brutal state¬ 
ment must *be made, the truth is 
that nearly every one of them has a 
purpose above and beyond personal 
enjoyment, but the selfish interest 
is quite frequently so deeply con¬ 
cealed that those who are being 
“cultivated” may not realize what 
the objective is. 

• • • 

These random observations have 
been presented chiefly to show the 
gloss and the 

Gloss and glamor that is 
Glamor self-imposed upon 
the hundreds of 
persons who combine to make up 
what we know as government. They 
play, as they have a right to play. 

They must have diversion. Fre¬ 
quently this diversion serves use¬ 
ful purposes for the country as a 
whole because through personal 
contact those charged with responsi¬ 
bility many times gain information, 
understanding, of the problems 
with which they must deal in offi¬ 
cial positions. 

And so it is that, as Washington 
returns to normalcy, we have a 
congress — the seventy-fifth — be¬ 
ginning its labors with perhaps a 
confusion as great as any in recent 
years with the exception of that 
which opened the first term of the 
Roosevelt administration. In my 
own mind, I doubt that the confu¬ 
sion of 1933 was as great as it is 
now because in that period of emer¬ 
gency, the important wheelhorses of 
government were concerned with 
only one thing, namely, quick en¬ 
actment of policies that would help 
in bringing order out of the eco¬ 
nomic chaos in which we found our¬ 

The current congress gets down to 
work, however, in a different at¬ 
mosphere. Agencies of the govern¬ 
ment time after time have held 
lately that the emergency is over; 
that policies considered now must 
be considered on a permanent basis 
and that if there is to be a new or¬ 
der, the make-up, the consistency, 
of that new order must be exam¬ 
ined with the idea of fitting the 
various pieces into a compact and 
workable whole. 

• * • 

It is in this atmosphere, there¬ 
fore, and under the circumstances 
of an overwhelm- 
Time to ing landslide of 

Take Stock votes which 
President Roose¬ 
velt was returned to office that the 
administration must take stock of 
what has happened in the last four 
years and must analyze the pros¬ 
pects as far as the future discloses 

Probably the most serious long 
range problem confronting the coun¬ 
try involves the relationship of gov¬ 
ernment and business. For weeks, 
I have sought information and views 
of individuals concerning the real 
crux of this problem because it has 
so many different phases. From all 
of this research I am inclined to the 
opinion that the fundamental ques¬ 
tion to be answered is that peril 
that faces the portion of our people 
that have passed the age of forty- 

It may seem like a broad state¬ 
ment to pin down the relationship of 
government to business to that one 
question of what to do with work¬ 
ers above forty-five but I verily be¬ 
lieve that is the crux. 

It will have to be treated briefly 
in these columns but nevertheless 
it seems to me that all of the grow¬ 
ing howl about “social security” 
centers on this one point. It cen¬ 
ters there because politicians and 
starry-eyed wishers have made so 
much noise about the government 
looking after the aged that a natural 
reaction has taken place in indus¬ 
try and, in consequence, there is a 
growing disinclination among em¬ 
ployers to take on workers past 

Under the whip of competition 
and in an effort to offset the costs 
of the present social security pro¬ 
gram, manufacturers everywhere 
have been looking for methods by 
which they can substitute machines 
for human workers. Where that 
was impossible, they have turned 
to younger workers so that the in¬ 
crease in protection per worker, ac¬ 
cording to the best calculations, is 
n . all due to the use of machinery. 
Greater efficiency has come from 
the employment of people able to 
go at high speed throughout the 
working period. 

This development has been in 
progress in the manufacturing in¬ 
dustries for at least 20 years but it 
has received its greatest impetus 
in the last three or four years since 
it became evident that the federal 
government was going to force upon 
commerce and industry protection 
fo. the older employees. 

Federal Reserve board figures re¬ 
veal that 16 years ago, nearly 70 
per cent of all gainfully employed 
workers were in the basic indus¬ 
tries while 30 per cent were em¬ 
ployed in the professions and serv¬ 
ice groups mentioned above. Five 
years ago, 60 per cent were in the 
basic industries and 40 per cent in 
the professions and service indus¬ 
tries while at the beginning of 1936, 
about 57 per cent were in basic 
industries and the professions and 
service groups embraced about 43 
per cent. 

From this it will be seen that an 
enormous transformation has been 
taking place in the type of work that 
people do. It represents, of course, 
changes in our national life, prac¬ 
tices and traditions but who is there 
to say when and where this trend 
will halt. Equally, what government 
authority can be able to say that 
social security laws enacted how 
will be applicable and workable fay 
the time the Roosevelt administra¬ 
tion ends?

The Mark “Sterling”— 

Fascinating History of the Term 
and Its Meaning Wherever Applied 

Hp HE name sterling silver has 
-*• a fascinating history. The 
name originally was Easterling, 
but in the progress of time be¬ 
came contracted to sterling. The 
Easterlings were a group of men 
who, in the Twelfth century, came 
to England from Camden in Eu¬ 
rope, a place to the east of Eng¬ 
land and from this geographical 
fact gained their name. The men 
formed a guild to uphold stand¬ 
ards of excellence in their work, 
and to protect themselves from 
robbers and pirates. 

Sterling Coins. 

The high standards pertained al¬ 
so to the coinage with which 
they paid those with whom they 
dealt. So unvarying was this mon¬ 
ey, and of such pure silver, that 
it became a gauge of excellence 
for all silver. The proportion 
of pure silver to the alloy was 
enormous, being at the ratio of 
925 silver to 75 copper in each 
1,000 parts. This same ratio per¬ 
tains even today in all sterling 

Sterling Standard. 

So adamant is thus ratio, that 
no deviation of it is permissible 
under the name sterling. Severe 
penalties are laid down by our 
federal statutes for infringements 
of this ruling. So when you see 
the word sterling on the silver 
you already have or on pieces you 
are buying, you know the articles 
are of the finest grade of silver. 
The silver may be marked 925 
fine, or 925-1000, for all these 
markings indicate the same thing 
—sterling silver. 

Solid Silver. 

The term solid silver is not 
synonymous with sterling silver 
since the proportions may not be 
925 fine. Solid silver is a more 
flexible term permitting more al¬ 

Plate and Plated Silver. 

The word plate, when applied to 
silver was once a guarantee of 
pure silver, but now the word is 
so associated with plated silver, 
that the name, silver plate, has 

lost its high standing. It is rec¬ 
ognized in its true sense of ster¬ 
ling, by a comparative few per¬ 
sons, those only who know it* 
rightful significance, and ara 
versed in names of silversmiths, 
recognizing wares as true plate- 
or as plated silver thereby. 

Standard of Excellence. 

So absolute is the meaning of' 
sterling as the highest grade pos- . 
sible in coinage or silverware, 
that the word has become synon-- 
ymous of worth and value wheth¬ 
er applied to silver, material 
things or to character.

Today and Tomorrow 

Tomorrow is not yours, and it is 
yet uncertain whether it ever will 
be. Today is the only time which 
you can with the least shadow of 
propriety call your own. 

Of course we are all tinetured 
more or less with pessimism, but 
it is as bad form to talk about it 
as it is to be a whooping optimist. 

One may manage difficult execu¬ 
tive work perfectly, but if his dis¬ 
position is fretful the work will 
kill him. 

Understanding and Knowledge 

Knowledge, without understand¬ 
ing, is as ineffective as was steam 
before Watts discovered how it 
could be applied. 

Your friend is not the one who 
tells the truth about you, but con¬ 
ceals some of it. Bless his loyal

Work and Values 

The wealth of the world is not 
its money; it is Li what we produce

keep going; no matter how you 
feel, you’re interested. 

A woman has fathomless cour¬

Friendship and Enjoyment 

Of no worldly good can the enjoy¬

If You’re Told 
to “Alkalize” 

Try This Remarkable 
“Phillips” Way 
Thousands are Adopting 

On every side today people are being 
urged to alkalize their stomach. And 
thus ease symptoms of “acid indiges¬ 
tion,” nausea and stomach upsets. 

To gain quick alkalization, just do 
this: Take two teaspoons of PHIL¬ 
minutes after eating. OR — take two 
Phillips’ Milk of Magnesia Tablets, 
which have the same antacid effect. 

Relief comes almost at once — 
usually in a few minutes. Nausea, 
“gas” — fullness after eating and 
“acid indigestion” pains leave. You 
feel like a new person. 

Try this way. You’ll be surprised 
at results. Get either the liquid “Phil¬ 
lips” or the remarkable, new Phillips’ 
Milk of Magnesia Tablets. Delightful 
to take and easy to carry with you. 
Only 25/ a box at all drug stores. 


Each tiny tablet is 
the equivalent of a 
teaspoonful of gen¬ 
uine Phillips' 

Milk of Mag.

Dr. Greeding. a wealthy and talented 
middle aged surgeon, is possessed of 
seemingly supernatural powers. Occa¬ 
sionally he can wish for something ex¬ 
traordinary to happen and have the 
wish fulfilled. Greeding meets Ira Jer- 
rell. a wealthy business friend of his own 
age. who tells him he loves his daughter 
Nancy and would like to marry her. Dr. 
Greeding is pleased and tells JerreU he 
has a clear field. Nancy, however, is in 
love with Dan Carlisle, a professor at 
the University who has little means. 
They discuss marriage, but decide to 
delay talking to her father about It. 
Nancy, who has been playing tennis 
with Dan that afternoon, tells her father 
she had been playing with a girl friend. 
Greeding knows this Is untrue and is 
secretly enraged. Stepping into his wife’s 
room, his eye falls on a marble statu¬ 
ette which he dislikes. He picks it up, 
wishing he could smash it to bits. Sud¬ 
denly it Is snatched from his grasp as 
by an Invisible force and burst asunder. 
Mrs. Greeding Is greatly disturbed over 
the mysterious destruction of the statu¬ 
ette. The doctor reveals that Ira JerreU 
wants to marry Nancy. On the way to a 
dinner party a oar cuts In front of Greed- 
Ing's. He angrily expresses the wish 
that the driver would break his neck. An 
instant later an accident occurs In which 
this very thing happens. At the dinner 
the Greedings meet Prof. Carlisle. Dan's 
father, and his daughter Mary Ann. Dr. 
Greeding is intrigued by Mary Ann. who 
is a surgical nurse. Mrs. Greeding 
teUs Prof. Carlisle about the destruction 
of the statuette and he indicates it might 
have been caused by a "poltergeist.” a 
"racketing, mischievous spirit." Dr. 
Greeding induces Mary Ann to take a 
position in his office. Eventually he 
finds he loves her. JerreU continues to 
see Nancy, whose love for Dan is un¬ 
changed. The Greedings invite the Car- 
Usles to dinner. Dr. Greeding discusses 
with Prof. Carlisle the subject of "polter¬ 
geists," the doctor telling of some of his 
own experiences, but attributing them to 
a friend. Prof. CarUsle comments: "He 
who eats with the DevU wiU need a long 
spoon." The dinner party is interrupted 
by a caU for Dr. Greeding from a neigh¬ 
boring town. He asks Mary Ann to ac¬ 
company him. It is late when they fin¬ 
ish. She is disquieted when he kisses 
her hand on parting. Mrs. Greeding up¬ 
braids him when he returns home. That 
summer Greeding becomes increasingly 
irritable toward his wife. 

CHAPTER IV—Continued 

From Mrs. Greeding’s point of 
view, Doctor Greeding altered In 
the direction of an increasing irri¬ 
tability. He was apt to object to 
things which hitherto had evoked 
from him no least remonstrance. 
Between any husband and wife 
there grow up certain tolerances, 
certain acceptances. It had been 
so with these two. Mrs. Greeding 
always came downstairs to break¬ 
fast, usually in a dressing-gown 
and slippers and with a lace cap 
to hold in order her untended hair. 
Despite her presence, Doctoi Greed¬ 
ing always read the morning paper, 
and Mrs. Greeding always talked 
to him constantly throughout the 
meal, content with his monosyllabic 

But now, when she did only what 
she had always done, he might ex¬ 
plode: “I wish to heaven you 

wouldn’t talk to me while I'm read¬ 
ing, Myra.” Or: "Can’t you find 
time to brush your hair before you 
come downstairs?” Or: "Isn’t a 
woman wiser to make herself pre¬ 
sentable in the morning before 
greeting her husband?” Or, ob¬ 
scurely: “They’ve a rule in Sura¬ 
baya, I have heard, that no one 
speaks to anyone else before break¬ 
fast. It's a good one.” 

Mrs. Greeding was disturbed; but 
she was not in the least in awe of 
her husband. 

“Nonsense, Ned,” she protested, 
one morning. "1 declare I don’t 
know what’s got into you all of a 
sudden. You object to the things 
I’ve done for years.” 

“Isn't the fact that you’ve done 
the same things for years enough 
reason for wanting to change?” he 

“No, of course not. People our 
age are old enough to have ar¬ 
rived at a routine.” 

“Our age?” he demanded, in a 
rising exasperation. “You appear 
to think me on the verge of senili¬ 

“I think you’re on the verge of 
being a crosspatch,” she said with 
a wistful tenderness. “Ned, dear, 
what’s the matter with you lately? 
Tired? Nervous? Are things going 
badly at the office?” 

“Nothing is the matter with me,” 
he assured her angrily. “But you 
take the typical feminine attitude. 
If anyting rues the placid surface 
of a woman’s life, she decides there 
is something wrong with her hus¬ 
band. It never occurs to her that 
there is anything wrong with her.” 

T haven’t changed,” she protest¬ 

'I haven’t either,” he insisted. “I 
always did resent your coming 
down to breakfast frowsy and half- 
dressed, and gabbling like a hen. 
But I’ve kept quiet about it for 
twenty years.” 

Sh« said carefully: “I’m glad 
you did, Ned. It has made the 
years pretty happy ones for me." 

So he knew a grudging contrition 
for his words, and came to kiss her 

cheek. “There,” he said. "Sorry, 
Myra. Let me blow off steam on 
you, won’t you?” 

“Of course," she agreed, forgiv¬ 
ing him completely. “As much as 
you like, my dear.” 

Early that evening Nancy and 
Dan had gone in her car, with sand¬ 
wiches which she had herself pre¬ 
pared, to have a picnic supper to¬ 
gether beside the Coehituate reser¬ 
voir; they made a lark of it, enjoy¬ 
ing the fact that all about them at 
little distances were other cars, oth¬ 
er young folk like themselves who 
hqd come here to be alone. 

“It makes me feel as though I 
belonged,” Nancy confessed. “I sup¬ 
pose it’s common, but I like it. I 
like to be doing the things all these 
other girls are doing, riding out 
here with their young men, and 
whispering together in the darkness, 
and making love.” She said half- 
dreaming: “It makes me feel as 
though I were part of a big thing, a 
universal thing." She held Dan's 
hand tightly. “It is big, and uni¬ 
versal, Dan: this loving, this mat¬ 
ing, isn’t it?" 

Dan chuckled. "Bless you, yes, 
I suppose so,” he said. “But I 
like to think it has never happened 
to anyone but us before. No one 
here can even half guess how I 
feel about you,” he assured her. 
“No woman could!” He said, with 
mock gravity: “In fact, I serious¬ 
ly doubt if even a man could more 
than vaguely understand the depth, 
the profundity, the complexity—’’ 

She smiled beside him, pressed 
her fingers on his lips. “Hush,” 
she bade him. “Those big words 
are over my head. Just kiss me, 
my dear; that’s something I can 

But in his arms she confessed 
presently: “Men are different, 

though, aren’t they?” And she 
asked: “Dan, do you like Father?” 

“Like him?”- he echoed. “Sure, 
I think he’s a wonder.” 

“So do I,” she admitted. "But 
I’m scared of him.” 

“Why?” he protested. “He’s been 
mighty decent to us. I expected 
him to rave and cuss and—” 

She interrupted reflectively: “I 
think that’s what worries me. When 
he first guessed about us, I know 
he was furious; but since then, he 
hasn’t seemed to object at all—ex¬ 
cept to want us to keep it secret 
and wait. Dan, I have a feeling 
that he’s just waiting for something 
to happen to separate us; that he 
thinks we’ll quarrel, or you’ll find 
some other girl, or something like 

“He’ll have a long wait,” he as¬ 
sured her loyally. 

“No, I’m serious,” she insisted. 
“I’m worried, Dan. He’ll stop us if 
he can. And he’s so shrewd and 
wise.” Then, remembering: “He’s 
changed lately. Mother says so, 
and I see it myself. He always 
used to be so calm; but now little 
things upset him. It’s like having a 
stranger in the house." 

“I suppose he blows off steam at 
home,” Dan suggested; and he said: 
“Mary Ann says he never gets up¬ 
set when he’s working, says nothing 
disturbs him. She thinks he’s a 
marvel!” He added, vaguely puz¬ 
zled: “And she says he’s a lot of 
fun, too—joking all the time, and 
gentle and kindly and considerate. 
She likes him.” 

Nancy shivered in his arms; and 
he asked: “Cold?” 

“No, not a bit,” she assured him. 
“I don’t know why I shivered. Just 


It was not wholly true that Mary 
Ann saw no change in Doctor 
Greeding. She did not confess this 
even to Dan; yet no woman can 
be wholly unconscious of the fact 
that a man’s thoughts are bound 
tight around her. 

A day or two after that trip to 
Kennebunk together, disturbed by 
her own perception of the develop¬ 
ing situation, Mary Ann came to 
the Doctor to suggest giving up 
her employment with him. 

“I think Dan and Father need to 
have me more at home,” she said 
evasively. “To keep the house run¬ 
ning smoothly.” 

He said seriously: “I can under¬ 
stand the need for you there; but 
there is also a real need for you 

“You could get some one—•” 

He spoke directly, with a disarm¬ 
ing frankness. “Let’s be straight¬ 
forward about this,” he urged. “I 
know what you’re thinking. You’re 
—ill at ease, since our drive to¬ 
gether the other night. You sus¬ 
pect that—my interest in you is 
rather more than professional!" 

Her cheeks flamed; and he said 
with a chuckle: “I suppose that 
suspicion on your part is not un¬ 
natural; but Mary Ann, If it will 
reassure you, I guarantee that I’m 

not in danger of railing In love with 

“Heavens!” she protested, laugh¬ 
ing. “I never thought that! You 
must think me insufferably conceit¬ 

He shook his head. “Not at all!” 
You know that I like you. I ad¬ 
mire your ability, but I like you 
personally too. Very much indeed. 
But you need have no least mis¬ 
giving, Mary Ann.” He added so¬ 
berly: “And in all seriousness, I 
do need you here. You are in¬ 
valuable to me in my work. We 
can save a good many lives to¬ 
gether, you and I.” 

In the end she did stay. He 
had, by stating her thoughts in plain 
words, shrewdly succeeded in mak¬ 
ing them ridiculous, and so destroy¬ 
ing any reason she might have 
had for leaving him. 

But also, she wished to stay. She 
found in this association with his 
work a daily pride and wonder. He 
had a healing magic in his fingers. 
He did miracles, without apparent¬ 
ly realizing that they were mir¬ 
acles. She saw him perform opera¬ 
tions which her training told her 
were well-nigh hopeless; yet the 
patient proceeded to swift and com¬ 
plete recovery. 

Late in June, Mrs. Greeding and 
Nancy went to the lake to open the 
house for the summer, and the Doc¬ 
tor was left alone in Cambridge. 
Mary Ann suggested one night that 
he dine with them; but Doctor 
Greeding declined. 

“I suspect your father is a little 
bored with me.” he said. And he 
added: “I’m dining with JerreU 
tonight. I hope he wiU spend the 
week-end at the lake with me. . . . 
By the way, when can you and Dan 
come up there? Sometime during 
August, say?” 

“I know Dan wiU want to,” she 
assented, added evasively: “I’m 
not sure, myself.” 

But he insisted. “You must 
come. Myra and I like to have 
young people around. I suppose 
it makes us feel a bit younger our¬ 

“You’re the youngest man I 
know," she assured him, smiling- 
ly; but she did not promise to ac¬ 
cept this invitation. 

He did dine that night with Jer¬ 
reU; and JerreU asked: “How’s 

JerreU Asked, “How’s Nancy?” 

Nancy? I had no chance to see 
her before she went to the lake.” 

“You’d better run up with me 
over the week-end,” Doctor Greed¬ 
ing suggested. “Myra wiU be glad 
to have you, and Nancy too, I 

To this JerreU readily agreed. 

They arranged, before they part¬ 
ed, that JerreU should accompany 
Doctor Greeding to the lake Fri¬ 
day night; and at JerreU's sugges¬ 
tion they chartered a seaplane and 
telephoned ahead, and when they 
landed in the open water in front of 
the island, a boat put off to meet 
them, Nancy at the wheel, some 
one beside her. Doctor Greeding 
with a quick resentment and con¬ 
cern recognized Dan Carlisle. He 
had not anticipated the possibility 
that this young man would be here, 
and regretted it; and when they 
were in the boat, he said almost 

“HuUo, Dan. Didn’t expect to 
see you.” 

“I was on my way to the moun¬ 
tains,” Dan replied. "Just stopped 
on my way through.” 

“I made him stay for dinner," 
Nancy explained, and turned the 
boat toward shore. 

Mrs. Greeding was on the wharf 
to meet them. They moved up the 
path to the house, and JerreU made 
appreciative comments. The house 
was like a Swiss chalet in out¬ 
ward aspect, with a low red-tiled 
roof. Within, they came into a big 
Uving-room that extended to the 
roof-beams, with a tremendous field- 
stone chimney like a column in the 
center. A balcony ran along two 
sides of this Uving-room at the 
second-floor level, and bedrooms 
were accessible from this balcony. 
Doctor Greeding showed JerreU his 
room, in the rear on the second 
floor, then himself returned with 
Mrs. Greeding to the big south bed¬ 
room which they occupied. And 
when they were alone there, he said 
to her in a low tone, resentfuUy: 

“You might have used a Uttle 
common sense, Myra. You knew 
JerreU was coming. There was no 
need of his finding Dan here." 

She said defensively: “I was 
playing bridge, at Mrs. Thurston’s, 
whqn he telephoned. So Nancy an¬ 

swered and when I got home he 
was here. After all, if Nancy is go¬ 
ing to prefer Dan, she had better 
find it out before she marries Ira 
JerreU, rather than afterwards.” 

"She'd have too much native de¬ 
cency to find it out afterward,” he 
retorted. “You know, she's my 

Mrs. Greeding chuckled in affec¬ 
tionate amusement. “Darling, of 
course! You are a model of loyal¬ 
ty, I know. Not many middle-aged 
wives can be as sure as I that their 
husbands have never looked around 
the corner.” 

“It’s not a thing to brag about,” 
he retorted. 

‘'It happens to be one thing I’m 
proud of,” she insisted smUingly. 
“The fact that you still love me. I 
shaU even boast about it, if I 

He said morosely: “I’ve neard 
mothers boast about their immacu¬ 
late sons, when I happened to know 
that the youngsters were plain dev¬ 

She laughed. “Don’t try to pre¬ 
tend that you’re fast and loose, my 
dear,” she protested. “I know you 
too well.” And she added, stiU 
lightly: “Even if you and Mary 

He exclaimed: “Myra, for heav¬ 
en’s sake don’t start being jealous 
at your age!” 

She hesitated, said then wistful¬ 
ly: “My age is just the age for 
jealousy, Ned. But I trust you." 

“Well, why shouldn’t you?” he 
cried. “What have I ever done—” 

"Nothing,” she assured him. 
“Maybe that’s why I'm afraid, 
sometimes. You’re too good to be 

"After all,” he reminded her stiff¬ 
ly, “even if you are ready to think 
the worst of me, you might have 
more respect for Mary Ann. She’s 
hardly a — home-wrecker, you 
know. It’s shameful to suggest—” 

“There,” she protested, laughing 
almost desperately, “I don’t sug¬ 
gest anything except that you have 
a swim before dinner. Here’s your 

So he was silenced, and began to 

After dinner Dan had to leave. 
Nancy suggested: “Shall we all go 
for a boat-ride, drop Dan at the 
harbor, and then have a run around 
the lake afterward?” 

Doctor Greeding caught his wife’s 
eye. “Take Mr. Jerrell,” he sug¬ 
gested. “Ira, if you’re a timid 
man, she’ll give you bad dreams. 
There are some channels around 
this lake that I won’t even tackle by 
daylight, but Nancy knows them in 
the dark. You go along!” 

“I think I’ll go too,” Mrs. Greed¬ 
ing decided. “I—” 

But Doctor Greeding said: “I 
want you to look over the bills with 
me, Myra, so I can have the checks 
sent out Monday.” And when pres¬ 
ently the others had departed, he 
said irritably: “You’re singularly 
dense, sometimes. Jerrell doesn’t 
want to ride around the lake at 
night with you!” 

She seemed about to speak, then 
held her tongue. 

After Dan was gone, the week-end 
passed pleasantly enough. Nancy 
and Jerrell played tennis together; 
they swam; they explored the lake. 
Sunday on the tennis court Doctor 
Greeding and Jerrell and the girl 
shot at targets. Pistol-shooting was 
the Doctor’s pet hobby. 

Jerrell proved singularly inept at 
this pastime. “I’d better stick to 
fishing,” he confessed at last. “I 
can cast a fly more accurately than 
a bullet!” 

When Doctor Greeding and Jer¬ 
reU climbed into the plane for the 
reKtrn trip to Boston early Monday 
morning, the Doctor was well con¬ 
tent Jerrell and Nancy had been 
together constantly; and when Doc¬ 
tor Greeding said good-by to the 
girl, he kissed her, and asked in a 

“Like Mr. Jerrell pretty well, 

“He's a peach!" she agreed. 

Mary Ann had already gone to 
the hospital when he reached the 
office; but he met her in the corri¬ 
dor outside the operating-rooms. 
His smile quickened at the sight of 

She remarked: “You look rest¬ 
ed,” and he nodded. 

“I am,” he said. "Ready to move 

She laughed softly. “Nothing so 
massive this morning,” she replied. 

The forenoon passed in a mo¬ 
notonous routine. When the last 
case was done, he proposed: "come 
and lunch with me. You can tell 
me what has been going on.” 

She hesitated; but then she as¬ 
sented, smiling at her own hesita¬ 
tion. “Very well,” she said. 

Thomas, Doctor Greeding 
thought, looked at her in sidelong 
disapproval, when they came out 
to the car; and the Doctor frowned 
in an exasperation out of all pro¬ 
portion to the cause. He named a 
restaurant which he sometimes pa¬ 

“Do you like Italian food—mine¬ 
strone, ravioli?” he asked. 

“Of course. And I probably make 
the best spaghetti in captivity,” 
she assured him smilingly. 


Racket of Imperial Rome 
One of the great rackets in the 
days of Imperial Rome was to court 
rich men in the expectation of being 
remembered in their wills. A rich 
man would have hangers-on who in¬ 
dulged his every wish and whim, 
and he would have so much atten¬ 
tion showered on him that oven the 
emperor himself was unsuccessful 
in making many marry and have 
legal heirs to inherit them. 

A Trio for the Younger Set 


'“THREE more intriguing nura- 
bers than these would be hard 
to imagine—even in this day of 
rampant fashion and scintillating 
style! It’s a trio that the younger 
set in The Sewing Circle will be 
enthusiastic about too, for first 
consideration is given them in— 

Pattern 1996—This excellently 
styled jumper dress is one the tot 
of six and the lass of fourteen 
will sing long and loud over. It 
is a guaranteed delight for both 
mother and daughter because it’s 
the simplest thing to sew and the 
most intriguing frock a child ever 
had. The puff of the sleeves and 
the flare of the skirt place a pretty 
accent on youth. Available for 
sizes: 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 years. 
Size 8 requires 1% yards of 35 
inch material for the jumper ailtf 
1% yards for the blouse. 

Pattern 1202—There’s subtle love¬ 
liness about this new dress for 
all occasions. It makes a grand 
thing of simplicity—a brilliant suc¬ 
cess of the new silhouette But¬ 
tons, bold shiny ones, add classic 
chic to the back. And in the matter 
of sleeves there’s an opportunity 
to choose for oneself. Sheer wool, 
challis, taffeta or silk crepe will 
be a likely material for this dress. 
Designed for sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18 
and 20. (30 to 38 bust). Size 14

Economic Highlights 



The Montevallo Civic Club held 
its first meeting of the new year 
at the Baptist Church Wednesday 
noon. The new president, Luther 
E. Shaw presided. 

No formal program had been ar¬ 
ranged for the meeting. The pres¬ 
ident, together with other members, 
consumed the time with matters of 
organization and impromptu sug¬ 
gestions concerning activities of 
the club for the past six months. 

The following chairmen of per¬ 
manent committees were announc¬ 
ed by the President: Attendance 
and Membership, Reese Woolley; 
Program and Publicity, C. G. Dob 
bins; Hospitality, Eddie Watson; 
Roads, Dr. J. 1. Reid; Community 
Development, Dr. A. W. Vaughan; 
Town improvement, W. M. Wyatt; 
Public Welfare, 2. S. Cowart. The 
complete list ol members for each 
of the standing committees will be 
announced by President Shaw at 
the next meeting. 

Rev. F. B. Pearson made a report 
yl the result of activities of the 
Public Welfare Committee in its 
;fforts to secure participation of 
he county and county authorities 
n the public welfare program, lie 
Hated that the failure to accomplish 
anything along the lines attempted 
lad brought the committee to the 
inclusion that the community of 
Vlontcvaito should perfect its own 
Ocal organization for raising and 
uhninislering funds for the needy. 

Whereupon a motion prevailed 
nstructing the Public Welfare 
Committee of the Club to formulate 
i plan for the community of Mon- 
;evallo to raise a public welfare 
und, and to consider expenditure 
if that fund through the organiza- 
ion of Miss Myrtle Brooke, of Ala- 
>aina College. 

The nation has come to the end 
on an eventful year. For the first 
time since the worst of depression, 
industry has felt the stimuli of bet¬ 
ter times, of broadening markets, 
of increased earnings. Prospects 
for the future are immeasurably 

You must) not be blind to the vi¬ 
tal problems that all of us as in¬ 
dividuals, and as members of the 
economic and social order still, face. 

The depression, for example, 
caused a great increase in the bur¬ 
den of taxation and, still more ser¬ 
ious, an unprecedented rise in pub¬ 
lic debt. The time for debating tha, 
wisdom of emergency spending lias 
passed, and the time for balancing 
our books has come. No less a 
figure than the President lias said 
that it should soon be possible to 
meet outgo with income, so far as 
the Federal government is concern¬ 
ed, and in achieving that he will 
have the wholehearted assistance of 
all responsible elements in our na¬ 
tional life. Furthermore, once the 
budget is balanced, wc must apply 
ourselves rigoroursly to reducing 
the debt and thus eventually de¬ 
crease the tax load. Such a pro¬ 
gram would give the strongest pos¬ 
sible spur to the recovery move¬ 

'flic problem of unemployment 
looms almost as large today as it 
did in the abyssmal low point. In¬ 
dustry lias pledged itself to do all 
within its power to curb this intol¬ 
erable condition, and in doing that 
it must have help of government, to 
the extent that no legislation be 
passed which will frighten the in¬ 
vestor—the source of all productive 

hamstrung unless a salutary change 
in public policy is made. The rail¬ 
roads pay their own way, and are 
rigidly regulated in all phases of 
operation. Other carriers, to tin 
contrary, are' unregulated or half 
regulated, and some are directly 
subsidized from the public treasury. 
Furthermore, there is the threat oi 
new laws—unsound in principle and 
unjustified in practice — that would 
in one way or another, increase rail-- 
road operating costs at a time w.hen 
the lines are supplanting deficit- 
with modest profits, without provid¬ 
ing means for the railroads to bet¬ 
ter their revenue in order to meet 
the bill. 

In the field of merchandising— 
a field which is intimately connect¬ 
ed with the welfare of every indi¬ 
vidual—there is the threat of law 
that would penalize the efficient in 
tiie interest of the inefficient, at llu 
expense of the consuming public. 

So it goes, down the roster of in¬ 
dustries.' Other businesses — insu¬ 
rance, mining, oil, manufacturing, 
etc.—are sharing in the recovery 
movement, but almost all of them 
are faced with serious man-made 
problems. These problems are also 
the people's problems — on them de¬ 
pends employment, investment, pro¬ 
gress of all kinds, and security io. 
the individual. It is to the solution 
of these problems that we must all 
devote our attention. 

The President announced that the 
incheons of the club for the next 
x months will be served by the 
laptisl ladies at the Baptist 

Certain specific industries, in 
spite of the progress they have 
made, are confronted with the grav¬ 
est difficulties. The utility industry 
is a case in point. It has enjoyed 
a vast increase in power consump¬ 
tion — yet it has been largely offset 
by artificial depresants, of which the 
principal one is the constant threat 
of subsidizing competition both 
from Federal hydro-electric plants, 
and -Federally-backed municipal 
plants. It is encouraging to report, 
however, that negotiations are now 
under way to eliminate glaring in¬ 

Our largest single industry, the 
railroads, has felt the stimuli of re¬ 
covery in material increass in 
freight and passenger traffic. But 
this industry, like the utilities, is

Past Games 

Montevallo has played two bas- 
thall games so far, Both coa¬ 
sts found Montevallo on the los- 
g end of the score. 'I he first 
me was played with Clanton with 
e score ending 20-16. In the 
eond, Jcmison trounced Monte- 

110 to the tune of 29-13. 

Now that the holidays are over, 
e boys will try to get a fresh start 
i beating Phillips in Birmingham 
i January 7. Last year Moute- 
illo defeated Phillips "ft” team, 
id in doing so made such a good 
lowing that the quintet from here 

111 be put jup against Phillip’s 
aek “A" team. 

Montevallo also meets Jemison 
ie next night, January 8th, in 
alcra. In this game Montevallo’s 
ve will try-to turn the tables on 
unison and repay them lor their 
cent defeat. 

Montevallo lost from last season’s 
juad four regulars, former Captain 
dm Kddins, Joe Woods, Charlie 
indky and Bill Spurgeon. With 
mr men gone, Coach Collins had 
jite a problem on his hands, but 
lis is the way the starting line-up 
oks now: Forwards, Milstead and 
lark; center, Confer; guards, 
omer and Lesslcy, 

There are two boys that should 
■ceive special mention for the fine 
ork thy are doing. Bill handier 
nd Travis Hartley are the two 
,ys wc have in mind. Both play 
ie guard position, and they arc 
ist becoming “sweet” little ball 
jwks. Russell Ambrose, Thomas, 
ud Johnnie Winslett also are coni- 
ig along fine. 

Let us hope that the Montevallo

mie good New Year resolutions. 

Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Davis were 
dinner guests of Mr. and Mrs. Den¬ 
son Elliott New Year’s Eve. 

Montgomery, Ala.—With the Leg¬ 
islature back at work after their 
holiday recess, several solons, in¬ 
cluding one prominent administra¬ 
tion leader, Rep. George O. Miller, 
of Sumter, indicated the lawmakers 
might agree to demands that a 2 
per cent general sales tax be sub¬ 
stituted for the l'/a per cent gross 
receipts levy which became opera¬ 
tive January 1st. 

Representative Miller, one of the 
Governor’s House leaders, said 
merchants of this county as well 
as hundreds throughout the State 
have expressed preference of the 
outright sales levy to the gross 
receipts tax. 

“In fact,” he added, “many 
business men have suggested rais¬ 
ing the rate to 5 per cent and at 
the same time abolish all ad val¬ 
orem taxes.” 

Rep. Lee Hanks, of Talladega, 
expressed similar views. 

Commenting on declarations by 
merchants in scattered sections of 
the State that they would refuse to 
pay the gross receipts tax, sev¬ 
eral lawmakers recalled that simi¬ 
lar statements were made several 
years ago when the tobacco tax 
was enacted. It may also be re¬ 
called that merchants of Mississippi 
raised an awful howl 5 years ago 
when the Mississippi sales lax was 
proposed, but they easily fell in 
line after the measure became law, 
and no effort was made to repal it 
while the Legislature was in session 
last year. 

Most important masurcs con¬ 
fronting the Legislature this week 
arc the substitute Repeal bill draft¬ 
ed by a Senate recess committee 
licadd by Senator C. M.A.. Rogers, 
of Mobile, and the homestead ex¬ 
emption measures on the calendars 
of both Houses. 

After years of bickering, the 
“wets” have finally made peace in 
their own ranks as indicated bv for¬ 
mal statements of Senator Archie 
McDowell, of Barbour, and Sena¬ 
tor Ike Dorsey, of Lee, that they 










In conclusion, it would be well 
for us all. on the threshold of the 
new vear, to look abroad at dic¬ 
tator-ridden Europe. In many 
great countries the free press has 
been abolished, bree speech has 
become a crime. All criticism of 
those in power lias been silenced 
with imprisonment and death. In 
some countries the right to worship 
lias been abrogated by law, the state 
has been made Divine, tbe dictate! 
in power must be regarded as a god, 
and the individual has been reduced 
to an actual state of slavery. 

While we pity the citizens of 
those nations, and wonder that such 
things could come to pass in this 
century, we can learn an invaluable 
lesson from their plight. Wc still 
live under a Constitution that guar¬ 
antees us freedom of religion, free¬ 
dom of speech and freedom of press. 
Upon the preservation of that Con¬ 
stitution and the liberties that it 
guarantees depends the futuic of 
the United States and the Ameri¬ 
can people. In the pursuit of an 
economic millenium wc must not 
sacrafice national ideals and prin¬ 
ciples that are the very lifeblood of

were willing to ahondou their op¬ 
position to certain features of the 
state store liquor bill and join their 
colleagues in rushing through any 
reasonable sort of repeal measure. 

Still • on the Senate calendar is 
Senator Simpson’s “parity” which 
designed to put all trust funds in 
the general fund of the State 
treasury with the exception, of the 
Unemployment Compensation In¬ 
surance tax. It is understood that 
Senator Simpson .has no hope of 
putting through the the measure 
and it is extremely unlikely that 
he will call it up. School load¬ 
ers sponsored a “parity” bill dur¬ 
ing the last session but decided at 
the last minute that such a bill 
would harm rather than help the 
schools. And. so they ran out .oi 
their own bill, urging the Senate 
to kill it on the last day of the 

Meanwhile. Chairman Henry S. 
Long of the Stale Tax Commis¬ 
sion. reiterated his determination to 
enforce the gross receipts tax and 
completed the necessary machinery 
for collection of the levy. 

Competent political observers here 
seemed amused by? a statement last 
week by Jeff Becland, President of 
the Consumer’s Anti-SalcSiTax; As¬ 
sociation, that lie would he able to 
enlist a very imposing number lor 
his “march on the capitol” Wednes¬ 
day. Reeland said he would lead 
10,000 prutestants. However, it was 
recalled that only 1,500 to 2,000 join¬ 
ed his previous “march” early in 
December, though Becland promis¬ 
ed 5,000.

these two, over snowy surfaces, and

“He would! Never saw such a

never get anywhere or do anything 
or have any fun. 

“He is pretty solemn at times,” 
admitted Dora a little soberly. 

They went on, easily, lightly; 
curved slopes slid under them; dark 
leafless trees slipped by. ”A New 
Year’s dance does not grow on ev¬

distance still seemed a long way, 
she did not speak of it. She was a 
little tired, too, but that would pass. 
Soon they would pause for rest, and 
for bites of hard chocolate. 

1 “It takes a little imagination, 
sometimes,” said Paul, “to think 
out ways of doing things. Andy is 
; good, solid dependable stuff, but 
slightly,” he smiled, “dull.” 

“I like him, though,” said Dora 
stoutly, “and it usually happens he’s 
| right . . . worse luck!” 

“Not sorry you came with me?” 

"Heavens, no!” 

They went on and on and on. 
Roads were blocked. No cars 
could get through. A horse team 
would take one day and part of an¬ 
other. Skiing across country was 
the only solution of reaching Dorset 
and the dance. 

“You’ll have trouble,” Andy pre¬ 
dicted, “mark my words." And it 
looked as if his prophecy were about 
to come true as they attempted the 
next hill. The wind grew colder. 
Dora was not as rested as she hoped 
she might be: not as quick or sure 
of balance. She struck a - snag, 
tripped and fell . . . not merely in 

the snow, but down and down into 
a surprise gully. A sharp pain shot 
up from one ankle to knee, and a 
cold and dreadful faintness crept 
over her. “Andy" she whispered 
involuntarily, as one speaks of a 
safe harbor in time of storm. 

Paul came after her. Somehow 
his picturesque good looks did not 
count for much now, though he 
tried valiantly to help her. “I’va 
twisted my ankle, I’m afraid,” 
gasped Dora. “What shall we do? 
Can you put your imagination to 
work?” she added. 

Just then, cold, truly fearful for 
what lay ahead, they heard a dim 
halloo in the distance. They waited 
and soon Andy’s bulky and solid 
figure stood above the gully. He 
plunged down quickly and gave not 
a word of rebuke save "thought 
you might have trouble, so I trailed 

It was Andy who took Dora back 
to her home. He carried her all 
the way, first over one shoulder, 
then another. Paul feeling uncom¬ 
fortable said he guessed he’d go on 
to the dance. “Happy New Year” 
was all Andy said. 

An arduous, silent and painful ex¬ 
perience. Dora could hear the 
breathing of the man who so brave 
ly bore her over the weary miles. 

“Why don’t you scold me?” she 

She could not see his face, but 
she felt him smiling. 

At last Andrew deposited her on 
her own couch in her own home and 
telephoned for the doctor. The last 
bandage was patted into place on 
her plaster cast as midnight struck. 
“You know, Andy,” remarked Dora 
slowly, “I’d honestly rather be here 
with you and a broken ankle, than 
at the New Year’s dance at Dorset. 
Quaint of me, isn’t it?” 

Big, solid, unplcturesque Andy 
stooped over and kissed her. 

“Happy New Year, dear! I’m 
afraid it will be a long time till 
you dance again.” 

“And Paul’s colorful (deas aren’t 
so much . . . after all. He looks 
well on a winter landscape. And 
you look well in a rescue tcL I 
think I prefer the latter.” 

“Which,” grinned Andy, “Is just 
as it should be.”

Here Is Good News 
For Motorists 

A new motor car anti-freeze so¬ 
lution, offering engine protection 
to a temperature five degrees below 
that of ordinary denatured alcohol, 
has been announced by the Ford 
Motor Company. 

The new anti-freeze solution is 
available at all Ford dealerships in 
the Atlanta Branch territory, ac¬ 
cording to Mr. E. D. Bottom, 
branch manager, 

This new solution also acts as a 
rust and corrosion preventative. Its 
effectiveness as an, anti-freeze mix¬ 
ture is derived from the use of 
isopropyl alcohol, a petroleum deri¬ 
vative, to which is added a quan¬ 
tity of pure methanol. 

In addition, the Ford solution 
contains a soluble oil which effec¬ 
tively retards evaporation. This 
means that Ford anti-freeze does 
not have to be\ replenished as often 
as does ordinary alcohol anti-freeze 
solution. It sells in the same price 
range as alcohol.

State Attempts To 
Divert Gas Tax 

Test Case Filed In Effort To 
Obtain Building Fund 

Montgomery, Dec. 23.—A test suit 
to determine whether Alabama can 
divert a portion of state gasoline 
tax collections to match Federal 
funds for a $5,000,000 highway build¬ 
ing program, was filed in Montgom¬ 
ery Circuit Court today 
The suit was filed by the Alabama 
Highway Corp., created by the 1935 
Legislature to handle highway fi¬ 
nancing for the state, and named 
as defendants State Comptroller, 
Charles Lee and the three members 
of the State Tax Commission— 
Chairman Henry Long, W. W. Ram¬ 
sey and John Kohn. 

Highway officials said $2,500,000 
in Federal funds will be available 
to Alabama next June for building 
new highways, provided the state 
can match the money on a dollar- 
for-dollar basis.

Here was an “Uncommon

ing species now dismissed in a 
series of feature articles by a 
great modern wri ter— Elmo Scott 
Watson. Short, attention-com¬ 
pelling and revealing, these arti¬ 
cles will hold your attention to 
tlie end. Don’t miss 




Filled to the brim with interest¬ 
ing historical data about real 
Americans,Watson’s new feature 
appears regularly in this paper. 
Watch for “Uncommon Ameri¬ 
cans” in every issue! 

For his second independent effort, 
David O. Selznick, the brilliant 
young producer who last season in- 
uagurated Selznick Pictures with 
the delightful “Little Ford Fauntle- 
roy” has gone into the technicolor 
field. The result is a truly breath¬ 
taking production of the great Rob¬ 
ert ITichens love story, “The Garden 
of Allah,” co-starring Marlene Dei- 
trich and Charles Bioyer, that mag¬ 
ically catches the mystic, romantic 
atmosphere of the desert that per¬ 
vades the novel. 

The use of technicolor miraculous¬ 
ly transforms both stars into new. 
more exciting personalities, and the 
fair beauty of Deitricli provides a 
perfect foil for the dark-eyed hand¬ 
someness of Boyer. Truly y r ou have 
never seen the exotiq Marlene until 
you see her in technicolor! She is 
dazzling in the newly revealed glory 
of golden hair, blue eyes and flaw¬ 
less creamy complexion. 

The immortal romance of a man 
and a woman from, different worlds 
who found a great love under the 
spell of the desert moon offers both 
stars roles that are made to order 
for them and both give the best 
performance of their careers. 

The Story 

Marlene Deitricli is divinely fem¬ 
inine and alluring as Domini En- 
filden, the lovely heroine of Hich¬ 
am's novel, the European girl, who 
at the death of the father, to whom 
she has devoted several years of her 
life, goes to Beni Mora, the parish 
of the kindly Father Roubier in'the 
Algerian desert, seeking a new life. 

Here she meets the strange 
brooding handsome Boris Androv- 
sky, who is obviously disturbed by 
a deep secret sorrow. 

Unknown to her, Boris is actually 
a Trappist monk, who has fled from 
the monastery after taking the eter¬ 
nal vows and is torn by the terrible 
inner struggle between his duty to 
his God and his love for this fas¬ 
cinating woman. 

Following a glorious desert ro¬ 
mance, Boris forgets everything but 
his love for Domini and the pair are 
married by Father Roubier and go 
off on an. idyllic honeymoon in tile 
heart of the desert. 

The story leads up to a thrilling 
climax and an unexpected denou- 
inent which it would be unfair to 
reveal here. 

W. P. Lipscomb and Lpnn Riggs 
prepared the screenplay and the pic¬ 
ture has been treated to the usual 
brilliant direction of Richard Boles- 

Distinguished Cast 

A distinguished and uniformly ex¬ 
cellent cast enacts the leading sup¬ 
porting roles. The eveit dependable 
Basil Rathbone is splendid as the 

Italian nobleman, Count Antconi; 
Hollywood's .grand old man, Aub¬ 
rey Smith, is superb af Father 
Roubier; the lovely dancer, Tilly 
Losch is magnificent in her screen 
play as the fiery Arabian dancing 
girl, Irena, and Joseph Schild- 
kraut proves the perfect choice 
of Batouch, the engaging porter- 
philosopher and guide. The 
film also introduces Alan Marshal, 
the handsome young stage actor, 
whose work as Captain de Trcvig- 
nac has set rival Hollywood studios 
clamoring for him, and others who 
give outstanding performances are 
John Carradinc, as the sand diviner, 
Lucille VVhtson as the mother Su¬ 
perior and Henry Brandon as Hadji. 

The soft hues of the desert lend 
themselves perfectly to the use of 
color and the scenes in the Algerian 
Bazaars and the cafe of the Ouled- 
Nail dancing girls were unforget¬ 
table feasts for the eyes. Sturges 
Came, I.ylc Wheeler and Edward 
Boyle deserve special mention for 
their glorious settings arid the cos¬ 
tumes designed by Earnest Dryden 
arc breath-takingly lovely. The 
film is released through United Ar¬ 

To say that "The Garden of Al¬ 
lah" is the crowning achievement 
of David O. Selznick is no small 
praise for the producer of “David 
Copperfietd,” "Viva Villa." “Dinner 
At Eight" and "Little Lord Flauri-

There are at least two advantages 
of farmers selling their cotton seed 
on grade. "In districts where cot¬ 
ton seed are sold on grade, farm¬ 
ers are paid,a greater share of the 
actual value of their seed than in 
districts where the seed is not 
bought on grade," reports the Bu¬ 
reau of Agricultural Economics. “In 
districts where cotton seed is 
bought on grade a larger propor¬ 
tion of the cotton seed crop reaches 
the mills.”

Remember When - 
Sloan Got $40,000 
Without Ridin’ Nag 

r\0 YOU remember ’way back 
r*' when — 

A jockey received $40,000 because 
of a race in which he did not ride, 
own, officially train, or bet on the 

That was in 1902 when the French 
filly, Bose di Mai, won the Prix de 
Diane at Chantilly. Tod Sloane, per¬ 
haps the greatest jockey of all time, 
had been barred for two years by 
the English Jockey club because he 
had committed the heinous offense 
of betting on his own mounts. So he 
had come to Paris and it was 
charged that he had worked the filly 
in trials for the stake. 

This annoyed the French Jockey 
club, which then had a tight work¬ 
ing agreement with the British lords 
of the turf. The stewards contend¬ 
ed that Tod had been refused a 
jockey’s license and consequently 
was not in good standing. So, as 
punishment for his reported appear¬ 
ance as an exercise boy, they ex¬ 
pelled him from the French turf. 

Tod sued and the case excited 
comment over all the racing world 
while it dragged on into the highest 
court of appeals. Finally when the 
high-stepping jockey, who had ar¬ 
rived in Europe several years previ¬ 
ously with a $250,000 bankroll, was 
down to his last pound the verdict 

It created a legal precedent for 
the turf but probably Tod never con¬ 
cerned himself about that Starting 
with the $40,000 received in dam¬ 
ages he soon was happily engaged 
in winning (and losing) a new for¬ 
tune almost as large as the one 
he previously had accumulated. 

A group of American Olympic ath¬ 
letes were forced to replace their 
drinking water with light wines? 
That was when the U. S. team was 
on the way to Athens for the 1906 
games. A stop was made at an 
Italian port and customs inspectors 
noted the huge jars of mineral 

Such a new-fangled aid to the 
well-conditioned athletes was be¬ 
yond the comprehension of the in¬ 
spectors. Visitors always were try¬ 
ing to work new smuggling tricks 
on them and they thought they 
knew gin when they saw it. So they 
confiscated this contraband “gin.” 

But even though they were weak 
on Yankee notions, the Italians 
were as strong on international gal¬ 
lantry as they were on red tape. 
Even now there are members of 
that team who smack their lips as 
they recall the gallons of vino which 
replaced, at the inspectors’ ex¬ 
pense, each drop of “gin” water. 

Bill Tilden turned down a $60,000 
offer to turn pro? 

That wasn’t so terribly long ago 
at that—a matter of about a dozen 
years. But since the 
lion of the tennis 
courts did make the 
switch he has har¬ 
vested a crop of dol¬ 
lars that is not to 
be sneezed at. And 
his example has 
been followed by 
other lights of the 
racket game from 
V i n n y Richards 
down to Fred Perry. 

The odds, though, 
are that Tilden’s 
earnings are a good deal ahead of 
any of his fellow tennis pros. 

A player, dusting himself off at 
third base, received the greatest 
surprise ever to come the way of 
a hitter of a game-winning triple? 
That was years ago when Moose 
McCormick had been with the 
Giants only a few days. He had been 
told to bunt bnt a ball came across 
the plate to hia liking and he swung 
with full force. 

He was met at third base by a 
red-faced, highly excited little fel¬ 
low. A season or two later Moose 
came to bat as a pinch-hitter six 
times in a six-game series while 
winning fite of the games and tying 
the other with his hits. But such 
fame was in the future. 

He slapped the dust from his 
clothes with one hand while he ex¬ 
tended the other for the expected 
congratulations. Then he listened 
in awe. The red-faced little fellow 
was not in a congratulatory mood. 
Instead Manager John J. McGraw 
was fining Moose $50 for disobeying 
the order to bnnt. 

Bob Fitzsimmons was preparing 
to win the heavyweight champion¬ 
ship of the world from Jim Cor¬ 
bett at Carson City? A visitor one 
day discovered Ruby Robert stand¬ 
ing just outside the Fitzsimmons 
bedroom door listening intently. In¬ 
side the room Mrs. Fitzsimmons 
could be heard lifting her voice 
in prayer for victory..

Magnificent Failure” 

'The slim, the irritable, the 

hungry woman takes on the pro¬ 
portion of one of our minor men¬ 
aces,” says Fannie Hurst in her 
amusing little book, “No Food 
With My Meals.” Miss Huret is 
writing frankly from her owr ex¬ 
perience in attempting successful¬ 
ly to lose pounds. She admits 
herself that although she under¬ 
took her reduction program under 
the direction of the doctor, she 
was not content with the com¬ 
paratively slow results and cut 
still further the low calorie diet 
which the physician gave her. 

It is one of the mysteries of 
life that it is much harder to 
lose added pounds than it is to 
gain them. The bathroom scales, 
which are now so general a part 
of equipment, enable us to keep a 
check on weight. It is not so 
easy for those extra pounds which 
creep upon us unaware as it was 
once upon a time. A few days 
of dieting in time will save the 
slender figure. Remember, how¬ 
ever, that, in general, the addi¬ 
tion of a few extra pounds with 
the years is an asset. They are 
usually needed to balance those 
lines which the years write. 

Unless there is some glandular 
deficiency, overweight has buf one 
cause, namely, overeating. The 
avoidance of more calories than 
are needed for use by the body 
for its own processes and for the 
activity of our lives may usually 
be a simple matter if there are 
no between meal sweets and no 
over-indulgence in bread, butter, 
other fats and rich desserts with 
meals. Not complete avoidance! 
It is only the second helpings that 
are usually responsible for undue 
weight gain. Looking out for that 
pound in time will actually save 
nine. Just one word of warning, 

FN ALL the history of missionary

more remarkable record than that 
of David Zeisberger. 

For 63 years 
he labored among the Indians and 
during that time he traveled many 
thousands of danger - filled miles 
through the wilderness on foot and 
by canoe. He built no less than 
13 Indian towns as centers of Chris¬ 
tianity in a heathen land and he 
lived to see all but one of them 
wiped out of existence. He had 
failed but truly his was a “mag 
nificent failure.” 

Zeisberger was born in Moravia 
in 1721 and in 1740 came to Geor¬

Bunyan Created Lakes 

Elk and Torch lakes, the beau¬ 
tiful finger lakes that stretch par¬ 
allel for miles along the shore of 
Lake Michigan near Elk Rapids, 
date back to the days of Paul 
Bunyan, according to the old lum¬ 

Lake Michigan, they say, was 
scooped out by the mighty Paul, 
to be used as a log pond. Instead 
of skidding the logs into a stream 
and floating them down to his 
pond Paul would hitch onto a 
section of land and drag it over 
to the lake, log off the timber, 
and then haul the section back. 

One day Paul hooked onto a 
particularly heavy timbered sec¬ 
tion near the Boardman and 
started Babe, the ’blue ox, out to 
haul it over to the lake. There 
had been a heavy rain, the 
ground was greasy, and Babe’s 
feet slipped. 

Torch and Elk lakes remain, an 
eternal testimonial to the blue ox 
and the time his feet slipped.—

/CASUAL clothes were never nore 
attractive than they are at this 
very moment. Planned to perfection 
in colorings as well as textures, and 
beautifully styled and tailored as 
they now are, whether you’re plan¬ 
ning either a resort, cruise or stay- 
at-home wardrobe it’s your casual 
clothes in the new stunning woolens 
that are sure to fit into the picture 
in the most fashionable and com¬ 
fortable way. 

Your frocks will be in lightweight 
or sheer wool and will slip nicely 
under your warm coats for northern 
and cruise wear, as well as being 
admirably adapted to active coat¬ 
less days in the sunny south. Your 
coats and suits will be in wool in 
varying weights according to the 
climate you choose—but no matter 
what type you select, you can be 
sure of the requisite amount of 
warmth with no fear of the tired 
feeling that comes from a coat of 
burdensome weight. For warmth 
without weight is the watchword of 
the newer woolens that are estab¬ 
lishing a coveted relation between 
[ style and comfort. 

For wear all day, every day, in 
any climate, lightweight wool frocks 
are styled on practical and jaunty 
lines as they have never been styled 
before. Bright and dark colors in 
gypsy, in Tyrolean peasant high 
shades, in plaids, in monotones are 
good for immediate wear for trav¬ 
el or town while pastel tones are 
recognized as becomingly appropri¬ 
ate for warm resorts. Pictured to 
the right is a happy little frock in 
plaid cashmere wool. Clever use of 
the striking pattern slims the body 
lines in flattering effect. A slide 
fastener closing from neck to hem 
is smart and young and a boon to 
the girl who must make a nine 
o’clock class, keep a business ap¬ 
pointment or appear on deck at an 

early morning hour. A mannish lit¬ 
tle velveteen tie loops at the front 
in a jiffy and a sporting leather 
belt marks the trim waist. 

For wear over frocks of this type 
with your trig little suede or felt 
hat there are broad-shouldered wool¬ 
en top coats with the same non¬ 
chalant poise as frock and head- 
gear. Warm, and weather resistant, 
they are smart and becoming and 
are charmingly appropriate for 
town, country or travel, be they 
with or without fur. Whether these 
coats be belted or flared or swing¬ 
ing wide in a swagger line they 
are cut with freedom for wear over 
wool frocks or skirt-and-jacket com¬ 

The chic of the casual topcoat is 
illustrated in the model to the left 
in the picture. Here a gray chevron I

The modern way to 
case a cold is this: Two 
Bayer Aspirin tablets 
the moment you feel a 
cold coining on. Then 
repeat, if necessary, according to 
instructions in the box. 

At the same time, if you have a 
sore throat, crush and dissolve 
three BAYER tablets in one-third 
glass of water. And gargle with this 
mixture twice. 

The Bayer Aspirin you take in¬ 
ternally will act to combat fever 
and the pains which usually ac¬

as a medicinal gargle to provide al¬ 
most instant relief from rawness 
and pain. It is really marvelous; for 
it acts like a local anesthetic on the 
irritated membrane of your throat. 

Try this way. Your doctor, w®

full name at your druggist’s — not 
for “aspirin” alone.

sent Barlow to France to dispose of 
these lands. 

They had nothing but 
an option on the lands but that didn’t 
stop Barlow. 

He sold a tract of 3,000,000 acres 
to a French Scioto company which 
in turn retailed farms to peasants 
and artisans who were willing to 
emigrate to America. In the spring 
of 1790 some 600 of them arrived

Auburn, Ala., Jan. 2.—The new 
year finds farm people reading and 
thinking more than ever before, ac¬ 
cording to observations by agricul¬ 
tural workers and farmers over the 
State. “Rural people are better in¬ 
formed on all subjects, including 
farming methods, markets, econo¬ 
mics, county, State and National af¬ 
fairs, and every other respect than 
any time during my remembrance,” 
comments a farm leader who works 
' with a large number of farm men, 
women, boys and girls. "Farmers 
are not only reading more news¬ 
papers, farm journals and maga¬ 
zines, but an increasing number are 
using the radio for information and 

Farmers Well-Informed 

One city observer goes so far as 
to state that farmers are becoming 
one of the best informed groups, in 
State and nation. “Mention most 
any subject to most any good farm¬ 
er and see if he doesn’t know a 
great deal about it. They are by 
far the best informed on best farm¬ 
ing practices and latest agricultural 

“No one knows better than news¬ 
paper editors and reporters that 
people, both rural and urban, are 
reading a great deal,” says one ed¬ 
itor. “Make a mistake and you will 
find out immediately that an error 
has been committed.” 

Possibly one of the greatest con- 
tributiing factors in causing fanners 
to read and study more is the New 
Deal national farm program, ob¬ 
serve a number of farm leaders. To 
understand what the program offers 
from year to year it is necessary 
for them to read newspapers, maga¬ 
zines, bulletins, pamphlets, rules and 
regulations. While doing this, they 
have learned the importance of 
being fully informed on all subjects. 

Record* Kept Well 

Establishing records and then 
keeping them up to date also has 
caused farmers to think more about 
different phases of farming. In¬ 
formation required for obtaining 
payments under the Agricultural 
Conservation program has caused 
them to know more about their 
farming operations than at any time 
in the past, it is, stated. 

New developments of agricultural 
experiment stations and the United 
States Department of Agriculture 
also have made farmers realize 
the importance of their keeping ful¬ 
ly informed, states a leading farm¬ 
er. “We must know of the latest 
improvement in livestock breeding 
and in crop production to make a 
success of farming,” he says.

Japanese Play Will 
Be Given Friday 

Continuing to focus attention of 
Alabama College students on life 
and problems in the Far East, the 
College Theatre ,on Friday, January 
16, will present "The Faithful”, a 
Japanese play by John Masefield. 

“The Faithful” is * an anglicized 
version of the forty-seven Ronin 
episode, most celebrated event in 
Japanese history. The time is 1701 
<and 1702, when in Japan fuedal 
lords held almost absolute power. 
The story centers about an upstart 
vassal, who by unscrupulous meth¬ 
ods, raised himself to the rank of 
over-lord, and who, in his efforts to 
become duke, treacherously causes 
the -death of a neighboring daimyo 
a much beloved leader. The seventy 
followers of this leader are forced 
to become wanderers—ronin—but 
47 ultimately wreak revenge. 

Dr. H. W. Trumbauer, director 
of dramatics ,says, “This play gives 
a fine insight into Japanese life and 
thought, especially in revealing the 
extravagant and characteristic loy¬ 
alty to one’s lord that stops at no 
personal or family sacrifice. Re¬ 
vealing, too, is the almost quixotic 
courtesy and ceremony that mark 
alike the most trivial and the most 
momentous of human relationships. 

“Japanese acting is extravagant, 
intense, stylized in a way unknown 
to the accidental stage. Make-up 
is mask-like, and costumes are 
rather symbolic. The College The¬ 
atre production of the play will sug 
gest rather than duplicate the Jap¬ 
anese method.” 

Upton Close, leading American 
authority on the Far East, who lec¬ 
tured for three days on the Monte¬ 
vallo campus in October, has loan¬ 
ed the College Theatre a rare book 
of color prints by Hokusai great 
Japanese artist. The pictures are

The Ford Motor Company ap¬ 
pears this year with the most com¬ 
plete line of trucks and commercial 
cars, in its history. 

They are available in both the 
85-horsepower engine and the new 
60-horsepower V-8, engine. 

Economy was the watchword of 
Ford engineers in the designing of 
1937 models, and for that reason 
the sensational new “little brother 
sixty” was introduced not only in 
all commercial types, but iiq the 131 
inch" chassis as well. The 131-inch 
one-and-one-half ton. truck is the 
only model not available in the 60- 
horsepower engine. 

Certain types of light city deliv¬ 
ery business firms and farmers es¬ 
pecially will profit by the sensation¬ 
al 60-horsepower engine. According 
to Charles Adams, head of the com¬ 
mercial division of the Richmond 
branch of the Ford Motor Company, 
operating expenses in some casts 
will be reduced as much as 25 per 

“Ford in 1937 has paved the way 
for the most inexpensive operation 
of commercial vehicles in the his¬ 
tory of the automobile business,” 
said Adams. “Taking the case of the 
farmer as an instance, tremendous 
transportation savings can be made 
by using the Ford V-8 with its 
sturdy, economical “60" motor. Most 
farmers have very little need for 
heavy hauling. Usually a small 
truck will easily suffice to carry 
produce to marketing centers and 
to handle his various trucking 
chores. For these farmers the new 
112-inch 60-horsepower stake truck 
is ideal.” 

For rapid urban delivery, where 
heavy hauling is unnecessary, the 
“60” sets a new standard for eco¬ 
nomy, Adams pointed out. 

The improved 85-horsepower en¬ 
gine is available through the entire 
Ford commercial car and truck line, 
from commercial cars to 157-inch 
dump and stake trucks. Substan¬ 
tially the same as last year’s models, 
notable refinements in design and 
advanced features of mechanics 
have been introduced. “For sheer 
power and rough-and-ready ability 
to ‘take it’ the 1937 Ford V-8 ‘85’ 
has no equal on the market,” as¬ 
serted Adams.

ible line of distinction between them.

into this unity a spirit of closer contact and better understanding be¬ 
tween the people of Montevallo and those of adjacent communities.

Nation Gathers Forces To Stage Biggest 
Birthday Party In World 

Leaders In All Walks Of Life Busy 
With Plans To Raise Infantile 
Paralysis Fund 

New York, N. Y.—Prosperity hav¬ 
ing come arounds the corner and 
the American public being better in¬ 
formed than ever before concern¬ 
ing the national fight against in¬ 
fantile paralysis, Col. Henry L. Do¬ 
herty, for the fourth year chairman 
of the national committee for the 
President’s Birthday Ball, expects 
Americans will celebrate Mr. Roose¬ 
velt’s fifty-fifth birthday with un¬ 
exampled enthusiasm on January 30. 

Early response to the committee’s 
proposals, he said today, was such 
as to indicate millions of Ameri¬ 
cans would hold more and bigger 
parties this year than ever before. 
Preliminary estimates were for 
more than five thousand balls scat¬ 
tered over the country in great 
cities and tiny hamlets all the way 
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, 
from the Canadian to the Mexican 

The proceeds on the basis of 

collections in previous years were 
expected to exceed a million: dollars. 

More than 300,000 victims of in¬ 
fantile paralysis in the United 
States continue to need the assist¬ 
ance of their fellow citizens in re¬ 
habilitating themselves as useful 
members of the community, he 
pointed out. This year seventy 
cents out of every dollar will be 
used for the benefit of sufferers in 
the locality where money is collect¬ 
ed. The remainder will be turned 
over to the President for the Warm 
Springs Foundation to enable the 
institution to continue its national 
leadership in the battle of man¬ 
kind against the mysterious and of¬ 
ten fatal malady. 

Leaders in every field of nation¬ 
al activity have rallied to the na¬ 
tional committee in its efforts to 
make the all-American birthday 
party a success. Science, art, labor, 

politics and society are all prepar¬ 
ed to lend their support to the com¬ 
mittee. The press, the radio, the 
movies and other agencies of prop¬ 
aganda, as in former years, have 
generously offered their space and 
time. Among the national leaders 
who were prompt to accept mem¬ 
bership on the national committee 
were: Ambassador Joseph W. Da¬ 
vies, Charles G. Dawes, Edsel B. 
Ford, Walter S. Gifford, William 
Green; Patrick Cardinal Hayes, 
William Randolph Hearst, Bishop 
William T. Manning and General 
John J. Pershing. 

Mr. Ford wired: “I shall be very 
glad to join with the others on the 
national committee for the Presi¬ 
dent’s Birthday Ball. 

Mr. Hearst: “i will be very happy 
to serve and appreciate very much 
| your kind invitation.” 

Cardinal Hayes was “pleased to 
consent to lend my name,” and 
other acceptances were in similar 
vein. . 

Several local chairmen, when they 
were asked to serve this year, com¬ 
pletely satisfied headquarters with 
a cheerful single word, “Sure,” they 
said, or' “Okay.” 

With the customary presidential 
inaugural ball in Washington elimi¬ 
nated this year, the national capitol 
will outdo itself in celebration of 
the birthday of the chief executive. 
As has been the custom for the 
past three years, President Roose¬ 
velt is expected to broadcast a mes¬ 
sage to the celebrants throughout 
the nation on his fifty-fifth birth¬ 

Endorsing the 1937 effort against 
poliomyelitis, the President wrote: 
“My own views are that the nation¬ 
al fight against infantile paralysis 
cannot cease. It must go on . . . 
I am sure that the birthday cele¬ 
brations in 1937 can be even of in¬ 
creased value to the nation-wide 
fight against infantile paralysis 
which is being conducted.” 

President’s Ball To 
Be Held Here 


Mr. Reece Woolley has accepted 
chairmanship of the committee to 
arrange for holding a President’s 
Birthday Ball in Montevallo, and 
announces this week that he is pro- 
ceding as rapidly as possible in 
perfecting the various committees 
to assist in carrying out the plans. 

The date for the Ball has been 
tentatively set for Friday night, 
January 29. The place will be an¬ 
nounced as soon as definite ar¬ 
rangements can be made. 

Mr. Woolley has invited the. dif¬ 
ferent clubs and organizations of 
the community to be represented in 
the organization meeting which was 
held Wednesday afternoon. He 
asks that any organization that may 
have been overlooked, and that is 
disposed to join the movement, 
please communicate with him, as he 
desires that all be represented and 
have a part. 

Complete details of all arrange¬ 
ments will be worked out this week, 
and full announcement of the plans 
will be made in next week’s paper. 

Elsewhere in this Issue appears 
an article which fully explains the 
use of money raised in this way for 
the aid of infantile paralysis vic¬

Jarman Given House 

The many friends of Congress¬ 
man, Pete Jarman, of the Sixth 
Alabama District, will be pleased 
to learn that he has started his ca¬ 
reer in the Congress with an unus¬ 
ual recognition from the organiza¬ 
tion forces, in that he has already 
been made chairman of the House 
Comittee on Memorials. 

It is a thing very much out of the 
ordinary for a Congressman to get 
assignment as a committeae chair¬ 
man at the very beginning of his 
Congressional career. 

In addition to chairmanship of the 
Committee on Memorials, Mr. Jar¬ 
man has been designated to mem¬ 
bership on the important committee 
on World War veterans legislation, 
and the committee on irrigation and 

Town Council Met 
Monday Night 


The first regular meeting of the 
new year of the Town Council of 
Montevallo was held Wednesday 
night. Mayor C. T. A'cker presided 
and all members of the Council 
were present. 

After transacting routine busi¬ 
ness, several ordinance^ were dis¬ 
cussed, among those passed being 
the motor vehicle and traffic ordi¬ 
nance. For the enforcement of this 
law looking to the safeguarding of 
life and limb in our community the 
Mayor and Council bespeaks the 
earnest cooperation of all good citi¬ 

The sanitary ordinance prohibit¬ 
ing the s emptying of all untreated 
sewage in Shoals Creek between 
the two main sources of our water 
supply had been passed at a. pre¬ 
vious meeting and posted as requir¬ 
ed by law. But that all may be 
familiar with this vitally important 
health measure it was decided to 
publish this ordinance in The Times. 
In this connection Dr. Acker, in 
conversation with a reporter for 
The Times said: “It is very import¬ 
ant that our citizens keep their 
sewers clean and free from con¬ 
gestion. It is our purpose to make 
Montevallo ofie of the cleanest and 
healthiest towns in Alabama in 
which to live, and we earnestly 
ask the aid and hearty cooperation 
of all citizens in helping to bring 
about this desired condition. 

At the meeting the question of 
the traffic light at the intersection 
of Main and Shelby Streets came 
up for discussion, and it was sug¬ 
gested that the light was serving no 
«ood purpose, it being pointed out 
that it was in too close proximity 
to the other light, thereby causing 
confusion to both motorist and pe¬ 
destrian. It wa sthought advisable 
to remove this light: and place it at 
a more needful location, to be left 
at the discretion of the street com¬ 
mittee. The street committee will 
take under advisement the placing 
of “stop” signs at street intersec¬ 
tions where, in their judgment, 
they are needed for prevention of 

Both ordinances referred to in 
this article are published in this is¬ 
sue of The Times. 


The regular monthly meeting of 
the Hendrick-Hudson Post No. 96, 
American Legion, will be held at 
the Hut in Montevallo Thursday 
night, January 21, at 7:30 o’clock. 

All World War veterans are in¬ 
vited to attend. 


The Times likes the physical and 
mechanical appearance of The 
Montgomery Advertiser since it has 
undergone some enlargement with 
the installation of a new press. 

The change in “Grandma’s” dress 
adds a delightful bit of spice to her 
disposition, which we always regard 
so charming.

Relief Measures 
Are Planned Here 


On last Thursday afternoon, Jan¬ 
uary 7, at 3:00 o'clock, the follow¬ 
ing citizens met at the Baptist 
Church in Montevallo, representing 
the several civic organizations and 
the churches, for the purpose of 
perfecting a welfare organization 
to provide relief to the needy of this

Mahaffey, Mrs. Fred Frost, Mrs. 
Bruce, Mrs. Edwin Allen, Mrs. F. 
W. Rogah, Mrs. Houston Wills, 
Miss Harris, Mr. C. G. Dobbins, 
Rev. F. B. Pearson, Rev. A. J. Cox, 
and Z. S. Cowart. 

It was determined from informa¬ 
tion at hand that there is urgent 
necessity in the vicinity of Monte¬ 
vallo for some measure of organiz¬ 
ed relief to many people who are'in 
distressing circumstances. Where¬ 
fore, the sevearl representatives at¬ 
tending the meeting, went into the

man of the community drive; Dr. 
A. W. Vaughan, vice chairman! 
Mrs. Houston Wills, secretary; 
Miss Nell Sanders, treasurer. 

The working limits of this relief 
organization were determined as 
that portion of Shelby County ly¬ 
ing west of the Louisville & Nash¬ 
ville Railroad. This organization 
is to function for a minimum period 
of six months, and will endeavor to 
raise a minimum amount of $1,800. 
Such money will be expended for 
relief purposes by the executive 
committee, which will be composed 
of the officers elected, and a chair¬ 
man for the several communities. 

Such funds will be spent only af¬ 
ter full investigation of all relief 
cases under consideration. Investi¬ 
gation will be done through and in 
conjunction with Miss Brooke’s of¬ 
fice and under her supervision. 

Mr. C. G. Dobbins was elected as 
chairman of the drive to raise funds 
in the Montevallo community, with 
Mrs. C. H. Mahaffey as co-chair¬ 
man. W. M. Wyatt was elected 
publicity chairman.

ization to set up local organiza¬ 
tions in the several communities

News Review of Current 
Events the World Over 

President Roosevelt’s Message Rebukes Supreme Court 
and Asks Increased Federal Powers—Wisconsin 
University Regents Oust President Frank. 


© Western Newspaper Union. 

T HINLY veiled but unmistak¬ 
able was President Roosevelt's 
rebuke to the Supreme court in his 
annual message on the state of the 
Union. Standing tri¬ 
umphant before the 
lopsidedly Demo¬ 
cratic senate and 
house in joint ses¬ 
sion, the chief exec¬ 
utive said: 

“The United 
States of America, 
within itself, must 
continue the task of 
making democracy 

“In that task the 
legislative branch 
of our government will, I am con¬ 
fident, continue to meet the de¬ 
mands of democracy whether they 
relate to the curbing of abuses, the 
extension of help to those who need 
help, or the better balancing of our 
interdependent economies. 



“So, too, the executive branch of 
the government must move forward 
in this task and, at the same time, 
provide better management for ad¬ 
ministrative action of all kinds. 

“The judicial branch also is asked 
by the people to do its part in mak¬ 
ing democracy successful. We do 
not ask the courts to call non-ex¬ 
istent powers into being, but we 
have a right to expect that conced¬ 
ed powers or those legitimately im¬ 
plied shall be made effective instru¬ 
ments for the common good. 

“The process of our democracy 
must not be imperiled by the denial 
of essential powers of free govern¬ 

Sketching the program for his sec¬ 
ond term, the President said legisla¬ 
tion he desired at this time includ¬ 
ed extension of the RFC, of his 
power to devalue the dollar and of 
other New Deal authorizations 
about to expire, deficiency appro¬ 
priations, and extension of the neu¬ 
trality law to apply to the Spanish 
civil war. Conceding that NRA 
had “tried to do too much”, he con¬ 
tinued: “The statute of NRA has 
been outlawed. The problems have 
not. They are still with us.” 

The President proposed federal 
and state supplementary laws to 
help solve the social and economic 
problems of a modern industrial 
democracy and challenged specula¬ 
tion, reckless over-production and 
monopolistic under-production as 
creating wasteful, net losses to so¬ 
ciety. It was indicated that later 
on he would seek enlargement of 
federal powers over industry, agri¬ 
culture and commerce. 

No members of the Supreme 
court were present to hear the re¬ 
buke by the President, but the 
house chamber was filled to its ca¬ 
pacity and there was a spirit of 
jubilation that broke out in fre¬ 
quent demonstrations. The loudest 
of these was accorded to Jim Far¬ 
ley, the genial national chairman 
being fairly smothered with con¬ 
gratulations for the November Dem¬ 
ocratic victory. 

T HE senate and house met the 
day before the President ad¬ 
dressed them and organized, with 
Mr. Garner of course as president 
of the former and 
Speaker Bankhead 
again ruling over 
the lower chamber. 

Tire one matter of 
interest in this pro¬ 
ceeding was the se¬ 
lection of Sam Ray¬ 
burn of Texas as 
majority leader of 
the house. He had 
beaten John J. O’¬ 
Connor of New York 
in the caucus, hav¬ 
ing the potent back¬ 
ing of Vice President Gamer and 
presumably of Mr. Roosevelt. Of 
the total of 16 new senators only 
two were absent, Clyde L. Herring 
of Iowa and William H. Smathers 
of New Jersey, both Democrats. 
Two new Republican senators were 
sworn in, H. Styles Bridges of New 
Hampshire and Henry Cabot Lodge 
of Massachusetts. 

Immediately after the President’s 
address had been delivered on Wed¬ 
nesday, both house and senate hur¬ 
ried with the neutrality resolution 
applying specifically to the civil war 
in Spain. The senate adopted it 
quickly by unanimous vote, but 
there were parliamentary delays in 
the house, and meanwhile the 
freighter Mar Cantabrico managed 
to get away from New York with 
Robert Cuse’s cargo of airplanes 
and munitions for the Spanish loy¬ 
alists, valued at $2,000,000. 

G LENN FRANK, president of the 
University of Wisconsin, was re¬ 
moved from office by the board of 
regents of that great institution, 
by a vote of 8 to 7, bn charges 
that his administration has not been 
capable and that he has been ex¬ 
travagant in personal expenditures 
for which the state paid. Allegedly, 
Dr. Frank was ousted because Gov. 
Philip La Follete demanded it. As 
one regent said: “He has not been 
Very Progressive." Accused of play- 



ing politics in this affair, the La 
Follete group replied that there is 
no politics in their attitude in the 
sense of political party affiliations 
or convictions, but that they have 
been extremely patient with Dr. 
Frank over a period of years, and 
that he has shown himself incom¬ 
petent in many ways. 

The “trial” of President Frank 
occupied two days and aroused in¬ 
tense interest throughout the coun¬ 
try, especially among educators. 
Chairman of the Board H. M. Wilkie 
and Regent Clough Gates were the 
prosecutors. Dr. Frank made vigor¬ 
ous reply to the charges against 
him, declaring most of them to be 
“false statements.” He explained 
that he had spent university money 
for his household furnishings be¬ 
cause there were none in the big 
mansion provided for the president, 
and he forced Gates to retract some 

As far as neglect of his duties for 
outside writing and lectures Dr. 
Frank noted that most of them 
were in Wisconsin, for which he 
never took any pay at all. He has 
been out of the state 137 times in 
ten years, he said, and eighty-eight 
of those trips were specifically 
with educational groups, alumni 
bodies or other university business. 
The remaining engagements, he 
said, were with groups whose prob¬ 
lems were related to the problems 
arising in the various schools. 

G eneral motors corpora¬ 
tion flatly refused to consider 
collective bargaining in its 69 plants 
except through local management 
Whereupon 800 dele¬ 
gates from those 
plants in ten cities 
met in Flint, Mich., 
and granted to a 
“board of strategy” 
power to order a 
general strike. The 
board is headed by 
Homer Martin, in¬ 
ternational president 
of the United Auto¬ 
mobile Workers of 
America, one of the 
Lewis C. I. O. un¬ 
ions. Eighteen of the corporation’s 
plants were already closed by sit- 
down strikes and walkouts, and 50,- 
000 of its employees were idle. 

The auto workers in their Flint 
meeting, besides creating the board 
of strategy with power to call a 
strike, approved of eight demands 
on the corporation ranging from rec¬ 
ognition of their union to higher 
wages and shorter hours. They also 
appointed a committee to negotiate 
with the corporation. 

Alfred P. Sloan, president of Gen¬ 
eral Motors, is on record as in¬ 
sisting that no one union shall be 
the bargaining agency for the cor¬ 
poration’s employees. As he left 
New York for Detroit he said: “Let 
them pull workers out. That’s the 
only way I know to find out how 
strong the union is.” 

Homer Martin has declared that 
“the question of recognition of the 
union is not negotiable.” 

William S. Knudsen, executive 
vice president of General Motors, 
declared the company never would 
agree to collective bargaining on a 
national basis and, despite strikes, 
would continue to produce automo¬ 
biles as long as possible. 

Still there was hope of a peaceful 
settlement for the G. M. officials 
seemed likely, at this writing, to 
agree to a conference with the 
board of strategy. James F. Dew¬ 
ey, conciliator for the Department 
of Labor, and Governor Murphy of 
Michigan were active in the effort 
to further negotiations. One stum¬ 
bling block was the insistence of 
General Motors that the sit-down 
strikers must get out of the Fisher 
Body plants in Flint before any 
conference could be held. 

Judge E. D. Black of Flint, who 
issued an injunction against the 
Flint strikers, was bitterly attacked 
by the union men. Martin petitioned 
the Michigan legislature to impeach 
the jurist because he admittedly 
owned General Motors stock and 
so allegedly had violated Michigan 
law by taking jurisdiction in the 

The prime object of the C. I. O. is 
organization of the steel industry, 
and the crisis in the automotive in¬ 
dustry was not expected by Lewis 
and his associates or wanted at this 
time. However, they are giving the 
auto workers their full support, mor¬ 
ally and financially. 

I T WAS announced at the White 
House that President Roosevelt’s 
eldest son, James, will become a 
full fledged White House secretary 
and draw a salary of $10,000 a year 
after June 1. Until the beginning 
of the new fiscal year, James will 
act as secretary but will be on the 
public pay roll as administrative 
officer drawing $7,500. 

At the elevation of James to the 
secretaryship, Assistant White 
House Secretaries Stephen T. Early 
and Marvin M. McIntyre yrill also 
become full secretaries. 

A. P. Sloan 

M INNESOTA'S new governor, El¬ 
mer A. Benson, in his inaug¬ 
ural address took a hard slap at 
the Supreme court. Said he: 

“I recommend that you petition 
congress to submit a constitutional 
amendment which would remove 
from the Supreme court its as¬ 
sumed power to declare unconsti¬ 
tutional laws passed by congress 
pertaining to child labor, regulating 
working conditions in industry and 
agricultural and industrial produc¬ 
tion, providing security against old 
age, unemployment and sickness 
and social legislation generally. 

“Progressive America stands 
helpless to enact needed social and 
economic reforms while a reaction¬ 
ary Supreme court has usurped au¬ 
tocratic powers never intended by 
the framers of the constitution.” 

burgh multimillionaire and for¬ 
mer secretary of the treasury, has 
offered to present to the nation his 
magnificent art col¬ 
lection, valued at 
$23,000,000, together 
with a $9,000,000 
building for its hous¬ 
ing in Washington 
and a fund dor its 
maintenance and in¬ 
crease. The offer is 
made through Presi¬ 
dent Roosevelt, with 
whom Mr. Mellon 
has been in corre¬ 
spondence and con¬ 
ference on the mat¬ 
ter. It will be submitted to con¬ 
gress with the President’s favorable 
recommenda tion. 

The Mellon collection, part of 
which is stored in the Corcoran art 
-gallery in Washington, includes 
many paintings of highest impor¬ 
tance and some fine works of sculp¬ 
ture. Lord Duveen of Milbank, head 
of a celebrated art firm, says that 
its actual value is more than $50,- 
000,000 and that it is the “greatest 
collection ever assembled by any 
individual collector.” 



I TALY sent a note to the French 
and British governments offer¬ 
ing to withdraw her support from 
the Spanish Fascists provided all 
other nations withdrew their sup¬ 
port from the loyalists. This was 
Mussolini’s reply to the Franco- 
British note urging that no more 
volunteers be permitted to go 
to Spain. Evidently it would’call for 
long negotiations before noninter¬ 
vention became effective. 

Hitler had not answered the non¬ 
intervention note, but the German 
authorities indicated that their 
“war” of reprisal on the Spanish 
loyalists for seizure of a German 
steamship had ceased. 

Probably realizing that his hope 
of final victory was slim unless he 
was ably seconded by Mussolini 
and Hitler or could speedily cap¬ 
ture Madrid, General Franco di¬ 
rected a renewed and violent attack 
on the- capital. Both Madrid .and 
Malaga suffered severely from 
Fascist air bombardment. 

The Spanish government at Val¬ 
encia filed with the League of Na¬ 
tions a protest against alleged vio¬ 
lation of its territory and its waters 
by Germany and Italy. But Ger¬ 
many isn’t in the league, and Italy 
defies it, so the protest seems

O F COURSE you’ve seen 
Sid Silvers, and laughed 
at him, in many a movie 
now you’re going to hear him 
on the air with A1 Jolson, 
whom you’ve also seen in pic¬ 
tures, but not recently. 

Silvers is something new under 
the sun. He writes the very funny 
lines he speaks; that is, he makes 
them up, but he doesn’t put them 
down on paper. He just says them. 
Somebody else takes them down. 
And if he gets a very funny idea 
during the final filming of a scene, 
in it goes and the scene is done over 
again. But what havoc that will cre¬ 
ate if he forgets himself and does it 
on the air, since radio scripts have 
to be written and re-written, 
and then approved. 


Now it’s Claudette Colbert and her 
husband who are going to adopt 
a baby from that 
famous orphanage 
in Chicago. Irene 
Dunne and her hus¬ 
band were the latest 
couple to do it—and 
Irene, worse luck, 
had such a bad cold 
during the first few 
days of the little 
girl’s presence in her 
new home that she 
couldn’t go near the 
Claudette infant. Meanwhile 

Colbert Claudette has been

successful stage play; she should 
be grand in it. 


Claire Luce, who was Fred 
Astaire's first dancing partner after 
his sister deserted him for matri¬ 
mony, is in Hollywood, with yearn¬ 
ings to become a motion picture 
actress. On the stage she got along 
beautifully with the nimble Fred, 
but she’s not making tests for RKO, 
so apparently she isn’t being con¬ 
sidered for his partner on the. 
screen. Practically everyone else 
has been, apparently! 

The blonde Miss Luce has a life¬ 
time on the stage behind her—that 
is, she has her lifetime, as she 
started at the age of four. She was 
one of the six or eight chorus girls 
in the musical show in which Mir¬ 
iam Hopkins and various other cel¬ 
ebrities were aj^so chorus girls—and 
what tales they all tell about each 
other in private! 

it looks as if James Cagney would 
break out again—not in a fight with 
a motion picture company this time, 
but in a new venture. He is talking 
of reviving the theater in small 
towns, so you may see him in per¬ 
son before long. 

It is said that Robert Montgomery 
and Pat O’Brien may appear with 
him, as well as his brother Bill. 
Meanwhile his first picture for 
Grand National, completed at last. 

the Netherlands and Prince 
Bernhard zu Lippe-Biesterfeld were 
made man and wife at The Hague, 
and all the Dutch people rejoiced 
exceedingly. There were two cere¬ 
monies, a civil one conducted by 
the burgomaster in the town hall 
and a religious one in St. James 
church. The tall, plump bride wore 
a silver robe over her wedding 
dress and Bernhard was in the full 
dress uniform of the Blue Hussars. 

Before the wedding there had 
been a series of disturbing inci¬ 
dents, including “insults” to the 
Nazi flag of Germany and protests 
by Reichsfuehrer Hitler. But apol¬ 
ogies and explanations cleared ev¬ 
erything up and Hitler sent to 
Queen Wilhelmina a cordial tele¬ 
gram of congratulations on the mar¬

five nations. During the World war 
Admiral Gleaves was commander 
of the American cruiser and trans¬

as “the man who took them over

How do you like the idea of a 
picture with Robert Taylor, Spencer 
Tracy and James Stewart in it? The 
picture will be “Three Comrades," 
and the author is the man who 
wrote "Journey’s End,” so the story 
ought to be good. Once upon a time 
studio executives would have 
screamed at the idea of putting 
three such players in one picture,

money as they can.

son” in our national annals. Hen 
rietta Johnson is the least known of 
all of them. 

In this era of the “emancipated 
woman” all fields of human en 
deavor are open to feminine invad¬ 
ers. But it was very different 200 
years ago. In those days woman’s 
place was very much “in the home” 
and she might not leave it, even 
tor excursions into the arts. But 
it was in that field Ihc, Henrietta 
by doing so she placed posterity 
everlastingly in her debt. For she 
was America’s first woman painter. 

We know her name but little else. 
The date of her death is recorded 
in the St. Philip’s church register 
;n Charleston, S. C., and that is the 
inly established date in her history 
By the social code under which she 
lived, “a lady’s name should never 
appear in public print but twice: 
first to announce her mat iage and 
again to announce her death.” Since 
she never married that leaves us 
only the date of her death—March 
9, 1728. When and where she was 
born and whose daughter she was 
i- an unsolved mystery. 

We know that she was a pastel 
painter and in this medium she did 
work that rivalled that of some of 
the famous French masters. We 
know that she was painting these 
pictures between 1707 and 1720. 
since the few surviving examples 
of her art were made during that 
period. And that is a fact which 
gives her work importance. For 
in her day the scheme of an heredi¬ 
tary American aristocracy was be¬ 
ing tried out in Carolina and the 
people whose portraits she made 
were colonial officers and repre¬ 
sentatives of the landed gen¬ 
try whose great plantations sur¬ 
rounded Charleston. 

One of the notables she painted 
was Col. William Rhett, colonel of 
the provincial militia, receiver-gen¬ 
eral of the Lords Proprietors and 
the man who, in 1718, captured the 
famous pirate, Steve Bonnet—a 
feat which would make the name 
of Rhett forever famous, even if 
some of his descendants hadn’t done 
so in the more recent history of 
South Caroline. 

Just how many portraits Henri¬ 
etta Johnson painted is not certain, 
but the known examples of her work 
that have survived for two cen¬ 
turies are so few that they command 
prices which compare favorably 
with those paid for the works of the 
“old masters” of Europe. Quite 
aside from their artistic and his¬ 
toric value, they possess a high 
“rarity value”—because they came 
from the brush of America’s first 
woman painter. 

Wonderfully dainty edgings, the 
laciest of borders, can roll off 
your crochet hook if you have pat¬ 
tern 1300. You can crochet an in¬ 
expensive bit of dress-up for col¬

Beware Coughs 

from common colds 

That Hang On 

No matter how many medicines 
you have tried for your cough, chest 
cold or bronchial irritation, you can 
get relief now with Creomulsion. 
Serious trouble may be brewing and 
you cannot afford to take a chance 
with anything less than Creomul¬ 
sion, which goes right to the seat 
of the trouble to aid nature to 
soothe and heal the inflamed mem¬ 
branes as the germ-laden phlegm 
is loosened and expelled. 

Even if other remedies have 
failed, don’t be discouraged, your 
druggist is authorized to guarantee

“Typhoid Mary” 

W HEN her Irish parents 
brought her to a priest in New 
York city one day, he christened her 
Mary Mallon. But on hospital rec¬ 
ords in the East she became only a 
number, or more specifically, “car¬ 
rier No. 36.” For she was the 
famous “Typhoid Mary." 

Back in 1904 there occurred mys¬ 
terious outbreaks of typhoid fever 
in certain sections of Westchester, 
Long Island and other districts 
around New York city. Examina¬ 
tion of food and water failed to 
give any clues to the origin of the 
bacillli which were causing it. 

But Dr. George Soper, a sanitary 
engineer in the municipal health 
service, remembered a German 
bacteriologist had proved that some 
people, while immune themselves 
to typhoid, carried the germ and 
gave the fever to others. Tracing 
the outbreaks he found that an Irish 
cook named Mary Mallon had, in 
every instance, been employed in 
the stricken household. He learned 
also that Mary, at the first hint of 
each illness, fled from her job. 

Finally the health authorities 
caught up with her and in 1907 she 
was detained and, against her will, 
given an examination. She was 
found to be infected with millions 
of typhoid bacilli. She went to 
court to gain her freedom but lost 
her suit. Finally in 1910, she was 

However, typhoid epidemics be¬ 
gan again and in each case Mary 
Mallon was found to have been the 
cook. Again she was confined in a 
hospital. Eventually she became re¬ 
signed to her fate, was given a lab¬ 
oratory job and then furnished a lit¬ 
tle cottage of her own on North 
Erothers island, where she lived in 
semi-imprisonment for 21 years. 

She died a few years ago—but not 
from typhoid. First there was a 
stroke of paralysis from which she 
rallied. During the next three years 
she gradually failed and finally, 
when she was sixty-six years old. 
Death opened the door for the frail, 
gray-haired little woman and “Ty¬ 
phoid Mary’s” long imprisonment 
was ended.

“That will take some proving,” 
he told her. “They are famous 
for it here.” 

But even after lunch she still in¬ 
sisted on the superiority of her own 
product. “We always have it Thurs¬ 
day nights,” she explained. “Maid’s 
night out, you know. Father and 
Dan devour it by the bale, or bush¬ 
el, or whatever the unit of spaghetti 
measure may be.” 

“I’ll come, some Thursday 
night,” he declared, “and give you 
a chance to prove your claims.” 

She hesitated, theu she said: 
“Do come! When?” 

“This next Thursday?” 

She said, half to herself, think¬ 
ing of appearances: 

“Dan won’t be there this week; 
but of course Father will!” 

He read her' thoughts, and was 
quick to turn them into another 
channel. "I saw Dan at the lake,” 
he remarked. “He stopped off for 
dinner, on his way to the moun¬ 
tains—was there when Jerrell and 
I arrived.” 

She smiled. “I expect that dis¬ 
tressed Pan, He (snow? JerrdI is— 
fond of Nancy; and he feels pretty 
keenly that he hasn’t much of any¬ 
thing to offer a girl like her. 11 

“He has—youth to offer,” said 
Doctor Greeding, watching her re¬ 
action to this suggestion. 

“That’s a fairly common asset,” 
she pointed out. “If youth is a 
man’s only capital, he’ll soon be 
bankrupt. I’d rather rely on qual¬ 
ities acquired by years of life and 
effort, than on the accidental—and 
fleeting—virtue of youth!” 

He looked at her thoughtfully. 
“You plead Mr. Jerrell’s cause pret¬ 
ty warmly,” he suggested, an in¬ 
tangible uneasiness awakening in 

She smiled, said in easy evasion: 
“Oh, I was just talking abstrac 
tions.” Then, abruptly: “It’s al 
most two o'clock. We ought to get 

So they rose; yet he said as a 
reminder: “Thursday night, then. 
It’s settled?” 

“Of course,” she agreed, and they 
went out to the car. 

Doctor Greeding found himself, 
during the days that intervened, full 
of a lively anticipation. When at 
about seven o'clock on Thursday 
evening he alighted in front of Pro 
fessor Carlisle’s home, he told 
Thomas not to return. “I’ll walk 
home,” he explained. The car 
moved away -and he rang the bell. 
Mary Ann herself opened the door; 
but she did not at once bid him en¬ 
ter. He saw that she was flushed and 
warm, and he said, smiling: 

"I can see you’ve been standing 
over a hot stove!” 

She said in a confused hesita¬ 
tion: “As a matter of fact, it isn’t 
just that I’m—hot, Doctor Greed¬ 
ing, I’m a little embarrassed, too. 
Hence these blushes.” And she 
explained: “You see, I expected 
Father to be at home tonight; but 
there’s some distinguished foreign¬ 
er or other, visiting Professor Mid¬ 
dleton, and he called Father half 
an hour ago, and asked him over to 
dinner. And Father went.” 

She added honestly: “He told 
me to telephone you and put off our 
spaghetti till some other time.” 

He said, shrewdly amused and 
pleased: “But you didn’t!” And 
he stepped past her into the hall. 

She confessed, slowly closing the 
door: “Why, I had it started al 
ready and it seemed a shame to 
waste it!” 

“Of course,” he agreed. “And 
now that I’m here, I've no notion of 
not staying. It’s a long time since 
I’ve been considered—dangerous. I 
feel suddenly capable of any im 

She could not well send him away. 
To do so would only serve to lend 
importance to the unimportant. So 
she laughed and said: “Spaghetti 
isn’t very romantic, I’m afraid! 
Come on out to the kitchen, and I’ll 
put an apron on you, and you can 

The preparation of supper amused 
them both; they laughed together 
and were gay. While they sat at 
table, they talked at random, and 
afterward he helped her with the 
dishes; but when the kitchen was 
all put to rights, they stood at loose 
ends,' not quite certain what next to 

“Now if I were a policeman, and 
you were a cook, or even a second 
maid,” he suggested, “we might 
walk out together, or go to the mov¬ 
ies, or find a place to dance! I 
feel that something of the sort is 
almost required of us.” 

“I think it would be much more 
comfortable to just sit on the side 
porch,” she decided. “It’s dark 
enough now so you needn’t be afraid 
of being compromised!” 

“I don’t feel in the least repre¬ 
hensible, or dangerous,” he said re¬ 

assuringly. “I’m too well fed. Just 
sitting will suit me perfectly.” 

They did in fact stay an hour on 
the veranda together, speaking of 
commonplace things, but softly; 
and sometimes silences enfolded 
them. There were times when words 
came tumbling to his lips and re¬ 
mained unspoken. They might, de¬ 
spite his effort at self-control, have 
found utterance in the end; but in¬ 
terruption came, a footstep on the 
walk in front of the house. 

“There’s Father,” said Mary Ann, 
and rose to go toward the door. 

Doctor Greeding followed her. 
“I’ll say good night,” he decided 
hurriedly. “Time to get along 

“Not afraid of Father, are you?” 
she asked, amused; but when they 
came to the door together, it was 
Jerrell, not Professor Carlisle, who 

Jerrell’s eyes met those of Doctor 
Greeding, and the two men stared 
at one another for a moment, equal¬ 
ly startled. Even Mary Ann found 
no quick word. Greeding could read 
Jerrell’s thoughts, could see the oth¬ 
er’s astonishment and reprobation; 
and he gushed angrily. 

And knfew a doubled anger. For— 
why was Jerrell here? Something 
like jealousy awoke in him. 

Then Jerrell was saying awkward¬ 
ly: “Good evening. Miss Carlisle. 
Hello, Ned.” And he asked: “Is 
Dan at home?” * 

She shook her head. “No. No, 
he’s in New Hampshire; won’t be 
back till Sunday.” And then, quick¬ 
ly, to Doctor Greeding: “I’m sorry 
our phone didn’t ring, Doctor. It 
must be out of order. Too bad you 
had to come way over here; but 
I’ll be ready at six in the morn¬ 

Doctor Greeding, perceiving that 
she was protecting him, felt a quick 
delight. They were thus brought in 
alliance to deceive Jerrell; and he 
said readily: 

“It’s quite all right. I needed the 
walk. And I’ll have Thomas pick 
you up at six." 

Greeding nodded, waiting; but 
Jerrell made no movement to leave 
—and Doctor Greeding was by 
Mary Ann’s deception left with no 
pretext to stay. 

His tone was calm as he bid the 
two good night, but he walked away 
from the house in a deep turmoil 
of conflicting emotions. There was 
a storm of passion in the man— 
of anger at Mary Ann, for permit¬ 
ting Jerrell to stay thus alone with 
her, in the empty house. He thought, 
absurdly, of chiding her next day, of 
uttering some admonition. 

But she might remind him that if 
his own presence there involved no 
indiscretion, certainly she could re¬ 
ceive Jerrell. This thought, that Jer¬ 
rell might freely pay Mary Ann 
whatever attention he chose, swept 
through Doctor Greeding like a 
storm; Mrs. Greeding, from that 
moment became in his thoughts like 
an iron chain that fettered him and 
held him bound. 

“I was afraid Mr. Jerrell wouldn’t How about you?” She never swam

you—feared his ill opinion?” he 
asked, in almost angry challenge. 

She looked at him in quick sur¬ 
prise at his tone, on guard, yet also 
amused. “Oh, of course I’ve my 
own reputation to consider, too,” 
she said—and-turned quickly away. 

He found no further opportunity 
for speech alone with her that after¬ 
noon; and when he left the office, 
the man was ready to risk any folly 
in order to see her again, to amend 
the damage his last word might 
have caused. Thomas, without or¬ 
ders, took the road to the Lake; 
but the Doctor ordered him just to 
stop at the Carlisles’. 

Mary Ann was not at home, how¬ 
ever. Professor Carlisle himself 
came to the door; and Doctor 
Greeding asked for her, his 
thoughts swift to seek a pretext for 
this call. Professor Carlisle said: 

“I’m sorry; she’s dining with Mr. 
Jerrell. Shall I give her some mes¬ 

Dining with Jerrell? Doctor 
Greeding shook at that word as 
though a strong wind blew upon 
him; but he managed to speak easi¬ 
ly. “It’s not important,” he said. 
“I was just starting for the Lake, 
and stopped by on the way; but this 
can wait till Monday.” 

Mary Ann could dine tonight with 
Jerrell, without provoking criticism; 
and he and Jerrell were of a like 
age, of an equal stature, both men! 
The only difference between them 
lay in the fact that—Jerrell’s wife 
was dead, while Myra was alive! 

While Myra was alive! . . . His 
dark thoughts focused there. 

At the last village before reaching 
the lake, he bade Thomas telephone 
the island so that a boat would 
meet them at the landing. The 
chauffeur pulled up opposite the 


Doctor Greeding did not sleep 
that night at all. He was shaken 
and trembling and perspiring; yet 
he felt cold, and he pressed his 
teeth together to prevent their chat¬ 
tering , . . 

Man’s character is built of many 
reticences, of an infinite number of 
self-restraints. He is molded and 
determined not so much by the 
things he does as by the things he 
refrains from doing. Doctor Greed¬ 
ing had so long held himself under 
discipline that it had become auto¬ 
matic to do so; he had molded 
himself into a proficient surgeon, 
into a devoted husband, into a wise 
and indulgent father. He had come 
to think of this individual whom 
he had created as himself, his es¬ 
sential self. 

But tonight he recognized the fact 
that this conventional and respecta¬ 
ble individual was not himself, but 
a mask which he presented to the 
world. Behind this counterfeit pre¬ 
sentment there lived another man, 
bold and ruthless and passionate, 
driven by appetite, drunk with de¬ 
sires so long restrained. 

He lay sleepless all that night, 
twitching on his bed like one racked 
by pain; and at work next day he 
was somber-eyed and frowning. Ev¬ 
en Mary Ann remarked this; she 
said to him when they were alone: 

’I’m afraid my spaghetti didn’t 
agree with you?” 

“Oh, yes,” he assured her shortly. 

She watched him. “I persuaded 
Mr. Jerrell to stay and eat the rest 
of it,” she explained. 

“Ah,” he assented in a grim tone. 

The girl was disturbed. “I hope 
you didn’t mind my—pretending you 
were there on business,” she said. 
“I thought you might prefer it so.” 

He said shortly: “I wasn’t in the 
least ashamed of having dined with 
you, Mary Ann.” 

Doctor Greeding Did Not Sleep 
That Night at All. 

lights of a drug-store; and Doctor 
Greeding also alighted, as much 
because he could not bear inaction 
as for any other reason. While 
Thomas was at the phone, he bought 
a box of candies. Myra liked candy. 

“Mrs. Greeding will come to the 
landing, sir,” the man reported. 

Doctor Greeding nodded. “All 
right,” he said, holding his tones un¬ 
der control. 

The car turned into a gravel road, 
tortuous and winding, and Thomas 
drove more slowly now. There 
were, a hundred yards short of the 
landing, some public garages, one 
of which Doctor Greeding kept un¬ 
der rental for the season. At this 
point he said: 

“Let me out here, Thomas. I’ll 
walk down to the wharf. You can 
put up the car, and we’ll wait for 

So the chauffeur pulled up, and 
Doctor Greeding alighted. With the 
box of candy under his arm, he 
went on down to the lake shore. 

The boat approached, its bow 
light shining red and green; Mrs. 
Greeding swung it in to the land¬ 

“Hot in town?” she asked. 
“Rotten,” he said harshly. 
“Where’s Nancy?” 

“At the Frisbies’,” she said. “Dan 
turned up this afternoon, on his 
way back to Boston, and they’ve 
all gone to picnic down the lake, 
cook supper on the beach.” 

At this mention of Dan’s name. 
Doctor Greeding thrust the clutch 
lever viciously forward, and the 
boat leaped ahead. 

“Tired?” she asked, "you seem 

“I had a hard week,” he agreed. 
Then they cleared the point of the 
high terrace built out into the lake 
in front of the house, and saw the 
boathouse lights. 

He eased the throttle shut; the 
boat slowed, the broad bow settled 
down into the water, checking 
their way. They drifted easily into 
the slip. He turned off the ignition, 
and the engine died, and he stepped 
out on the wharf. Thomas was 
making the boat fast at bow and 
stern. He said: “Good-night, Thom¬ 

Mrs. Greeding climbed out of the 
boat, and they went up the winding 
path toward the house together. 

Doctor Greeding and Mrs. Greed¬ 
ing came to the big empty house. 
The living-room was lighted, and 
the billiard-room. Their steps ech¬ 
oed hollowly. She kissed him. 

"Would you like some supper— 
crackers and milk or something, 

He shook his head. “I’ll swim,” 
he said. “I’m still hot from town. 

He went upstairs alone, while she 
stayed below. Then: “Myra, will 
you bring me my trunks?” 

She said, amused: “You’re the 
most helpless thing!” He heard her 
coming ap the stairs, heard her go 
out on the balcony and so return. 
She appeared in the open doorway, 
his swimming-trunks in her hand. 
He took them. 

“I brought you a box of candy,” 
he said curtly. “There on the ta¬ 

She was fond of sweets. She 
loosed the wrappings, opened the 
box. “Bless you,” she said. “You 
never forget, do you Ned? I know 
I shouldn’t eat them, but—” 

She chose a caramel. He buttoned 
the trunks. She put the piece of 
candy in her mouth; and mumbling 
the words, she asked casually: 

“Who did you see, this week?” 

This trick of hers, speaking when 
her mouth was full, always exas¬ 
perated him; it acted now like a 
detonator on his bottled anger. 

“I had dinner with Mary Ann 
last night,” he said, willing to an¬ 
noy her. 

She protested: “Ned, was that 
wise? It takes so little to start talk.” 

“Talk! Talk! Talk!” he explod¬ 
ed, his eyes red and wrathful. “I’m 
sick to death of your talk! I wish 

She seemed suddenly to choke, 
as though on the candy in her 
mouth. The Doctor stared at her in 
swift dawning understanding. He 
took one step toward her; then, his 
face pale, his lips white, while she 
coughed, strangling, he went 
abruptly out of the room, down to 
the little beach where they were 
accustomed to swim. 

He burst into the water with a 
sort of violence, like a man break¬ 
ing chains which bound him. He 
dived and ?wam under water, far 
out from the shore. 

When he came to the surface, 
he heard a motorboat approaching. 
It rounded the point of the island, 
its exhaust suddenly loud and near 
at hand, fioctor Greeding swam 
back toward the beach, to be clear 
of its course; and a moment latej. 
the boat slid past him into the emp¬ 
ty slip, and the engine died. As he 
reached the beach, Nancy, a white 
•hadpW in the darkness, carpe up 
the pa til Dan at ace shoulder? 

Doctor Greeding* s voice was Calm 
and steady as he called: “Huilo, 

She had not seen him. “Oh, you, 
Father!” she cried, startled at this 

“Yes.” He kissed her, at arm’s 
length, careful not to wet her. “Hel¬ 
lo, Dan,” he said, and grasped the 
young man’s hand. 

“Where’s Mother?” Nancy asked. 

“She was just starting to devour 
a box of candy when I came down 
to swim,” he explained, and they 
went up to the house together. 

At once Doctor Greeding went up¬ 

And an' instant later he called, 
from the door of their room up 
there, in tones of terror and de¬ 

“Nancy! Nancy! Quick! Come 

In the first shock of that desperate 
alarm, Nancy and Dan stood an 
instant motionless; Then Nancy ran 
through the billiard-room toward 
the stairs, and Dan came in great 
leaps after her. 

The door into the big south bed¬ 
room which Doctor and Mrs. Greed¬ 
ing shared was open; Nancy came 
to the door and saw him bending 
over her mother, who lay across 
the bed. 

The girl, in her terrot, cried 
meaningless words. Then Doctor 
Greeding, even while he made au¬ 
tomatic efforts at resuscitation, 
said harshly: 

“She’s dead, Nancy!” 

“Dead?” Her voice was a hollow 

‘She must have choked on a piece 
of candy,” he panted. “Open the 
windows, quick!” 

’They’re open, Doctor,” Dan told 

Nancy brought whisky in a glass, 
and Doctor Greeding forced it be¬ 
tween Mrs. Greeding’s set teeth; it 
spilled as though out of an over¬ 
flowing cup. When he saw this he 
stopped his efforts, and stood erect, 
looking down at his wife’s body, 
and then at his daughter. He put 
his arms around the girl. 

“Nancy, she’s gone,” he said 
brokenly, and held her close. 
“You’ll have to be the steady one, 
Nancy. You’re all I’ve got left, 

She stood erect in his arms, no 
wavering in her; but after a mo¬ 
ment, releasing herself, she turned 
to the bed. Her mother’s garments 
were disordered. She straightened 
them. Her father helping, they laid 
Mrs. Greeding’s body decently. 
Then Doctor Greeding drew Nancy 


Simple, Practical Frocks 

1314 - 


W HERE, oh where is the 
feminine * 

- warurooe m«. 
Wouldn’t take on momentum 
through the addition of just these 
three . simple, wearable frocks? 
Surely like the Model T, it would 
be hard to find. And the thrilling 
thing — the important feature — 
is that these frocks are planned 
and patterned exclusively for the 
modern woman who sews—for you, 
a member of The Sewing Circle. 

Pattern 1914 is a house dress 
with a future. It is young and 
practical. The new notched col¬ 
lar, ending as it does in twin 
scallops below the yoke line, 
gives the waist front balance and 
brightness. The bodice is slightly 
fulled to make this a comfortable 
style to work in as well as one 
that is attractive to look at. The 
skirt is slim lined and simple— 
as you would have it. Use dimity, 
dotted swiss or gingham for this 
number. Designed for sizes: 34, 
36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46 and 48. Size 
36 requires 3% yards of 35 inch 

Pattern 1989 is the polite young 
model caught with its back this 
way, perhaps the better to show 
off the beautiful shoulders arid 
chicest - of - chic descending lines. 
You’ll run-up this frock in short 
order but you’ll wear it endlessly 
ai d with that happy confidence 
which only a style with distinc 
tion can give. Make it of rasp¬ 
berry wool crepe and trim the 
collar, cuffs and hem with royal 
blue. Pattern 1989 comes in sizes 
14, 16, 18 and 20 (32 to 42 bust). 
Size 16 requires 3 yards of 54 inch 
material with 5 yards of braid 
for trimming. 

Pattern 1206 is a most attractive 
newcomer to the blouse ’n’ skirt 
category. An alliance of this sort 
brings glamour and romance to 
the gay wearer. Gold or silver 
metallic cloth, or, perhaps shim¬ 
mering satin for the blouse with 
a skirt of velvet will make a mil¬ 
lion dollar outfit. Make it yours in 
a couple of hours. It is available 
in sizes 14, 16, 18 and 20 (32 to 42

The U. S. In Africa 
A great day in the war history 
of the Stars and Stripes occurred 
in 1805 when Lieut. P. N. O’Bannon 
raised it for the first time over 
foreign conquered territory, over 
the Tripolitan fortress which the 
marines had captured at Derne, on 
the north coast of Africa. It hap¬ 
pened in the war with the Bar- 
bary States over tribute exacted 
from shipping in the Mediterrane¬ 
an. Again, American arms had 
done what other Europeans 
couldn’t Pope Pius XI declared 
the Americans did more for Chris¬ 
tendom against these pirate states 
than all the powers of Europe com¬

The death of former Governor 
Charles Henderson, occurred at his 
home in Troy last Thursday, after 
an illness of several days. He was 
77 years old. His services as Gov¬ 
ernor of Alabama were for one 
term, 1915 to 1919, during the pe¬ 
riod of the World War. 

In Montgomery flags flew at half 
mast as the funeral was held in 
Troy Saturday. Headed by Gover¬ 
nor and Mrs. Bibb Graves, a large 
number of state officials and dig¬ 
nitaries attended the last rites. 

Not alone fo f his public service 
as Governor was Charles Hender¬ 
son, widely known and honored. He 
was one of the leading business 
men of Alabama, having large fi¬ 
nancial interests that connected him 
directly with many of the state’s 
most important commercial institu¬ 

During the year just closed, there 
has been fulfillment of hopes mixed 
with a number of disappointments 
in the industrial field. It is true 
that production and sales indexes 
are at the highest levels since de¬ 
pression set in. It is also true that 
various grave problems—notably 
that of unemployment — are still a 
long way from solution. 

As a result, industry looks for¬ 
ward to 1937 with optimism tinged 
with worry. It is probable that the 
most favorable outlook of all is held 
by the retail trade business. Last 
year's December buying totaled 
more than $5,000,000,000 — as com¬ 
pared with $4,600,000,01X1 in Dec- 
cember, 1935, and $3,700,000,000 in 
December, 1933, which marked the 
lowpoint. Consequently, seasonal 
employment last December (extra 
clerks and office workers in depart¬ 
ment stores, etc.) was encouraging¬ 
ly high. This was reflected to some 
extent in the production field. 
However, payrolls are still abnor¬ 
mally low. 

A synopsis of current business 
taken from authoritative sources, 

Electric Utilities: During 1936, 
this industry spent $330,000,000 
for new capital equipment. This 
year it will spend more than 
$530,000,000, as a result of increas¬ 
ing demand. Principal expenditure 
will go for expanding generating 
facilities, which will be more than 
doubled. The political situation is 
a highly important factor so far as 
utilities are concerned, and will dic¬ 
tate their budgets and employ¬ 
ment to a considerable extent. 
Automobiles: There 

Railroads: Traffic is good, profits 
are small. Some executives feel 
that the ICC’s refusal to continue 
the emergency surcharges is a se¬ 
rious blow. ICC says, on the other 
hand, fliat the emergency is over, 
and more freight pick-ups will cov¬ 
er the loss. Time can only tell 
which side is right. In the mean¬ 
time the lines are continuing their 
expansion and betterment programs 
in both freight and passenger fields. 

Airlines: Seem to be making a 
steadily increasing appeal to that 
part of the traveling public with 
can afford the higher fares. One 
line reports a 122 per cent jump in 

Employment: As m e n t i o n e d 

above, is still one of the most se¬ 
rious of our internal problems. Un¬ 
employment total is hovering 
around six or seven millions. Bus¬ 
iness must make big progress in 
production before this labor surplus 
is absorbed. Politics, taxation,' 
labor troudles and technological 
advance are great obstacles to nor¬ 
mal employment. 

Agriculture: Had the best gross 
income in 1936 since 1929. Crops 
were smaller, as a result of drought 
but prices were higher in practi¬ 
cally all lines. 



After a survey of the needs of a 
public welfare and relief program 
in this vicinity, it is the opinion of 
those who have studied the situation 
that there exists such needs as de¬ 
mand organized community effort. 

Having exhausted all hopes of 
getting the county to enlist in the 
public welfare program, a group of 
people in Montevallo have set up an 
organization to raise funds, investi¬ 
gate cases, receive recommendation, 
and expend money for the relief of 
people who are found worthy of 
help. Within a few days the effort 
to raise $1,800 for relief and public 
welfare purposes in the west side 
of Shelby County will start. The 
appeal is now going to the public 
through various channels. Sub¬ 
scriptions will be received in cash, 
by pledges of money, or gifts of 
food and clothing that may be used 
to. relieve those in distress. The 
program is designed to carry on 
over a period of six iponths. 

The formation of this organiza¬ 
tion is designed to take care of the 
needs of flic people in Shelby Coun¬ 
ty on the west side of the L. & N. 

Calera, Wilton, Aldrich, Siluria, 
and other community centers in the 
area will b‘e invited to co-operate 
in the program. Calera has already 
set up its own community organ¬ 
ization, and declared willingness to 
take part. 

If Shelby County as a whole must 
remain as one of the two counties 
in Alabama no^loing anything for 
public welfare, the community of 
kjontevallo feels its duty to go 
ahead and try to help these help 
less ones in our immediate vicinity 
who have nowhere else to look for 
aid, comfort, and health. 

As we gird ourselves for this task, 
which we regard, as a public obliga¬ 
tion, let us ponder these words re 
cently spoken by President Roose¬ 
velt in his address to Congress on 
the state of the Union: 

“Many millions of Americans still 
live in habitations which not only 
fail to provide the physical benefits 
of modern civilization, but breed 
disease and impair the health of 
future generations.” 

be almost no limit to the public s 
appetite for new cars. On the debit 
side of the ledger is the threat of 
labor troubles, which have already 
hit machine, tool, and accessory 
makers. John L. Lewis is known 
to be planning a campaign to un¬ 
ionize General Motors, as a prelude 
to unionizing the rest of the in¬ 

Construction: For the past five 
years, a major building boom 
lias been anticipated. It has not oc- 
urred. However, during 1936 con¬ 
struction was at least 50 percent 
better than in 1935, with home 
building 70 per cent ahead. Ameri¬ 
ca still faces a considerable hous¬ 
ing shortage, and the building in¬ 
dustry hopes that 1937 will finally 
prove to be the year in which 
Americans will go into the market 
for new homes, as well as exten¬ 
sive modernization of old homes. 

Steel: Has just closed the 

third best year in its history, with 
production tlw best since 1929. But 
this industry also is troubled with 
potential labor difficulties. 

In the near future, you are like¬ 
ly to see a high technical discussion 
going on as to the merits and de¬ 
merits of “easy money.” 

For four years the Fe.deral gov¬ 
ernment has gradually forced in¬ 
terest rates down, in an effort to 
make money more plentiful. Any 
security holder can bear witness' to 
that — where Grade A bonds used 
seems to to command five and six per cent, 

they now bring Tess than four per 
cent for the most part. 

Government experts say this is a 
good thing, that high priced mon¬ 
ey holds back business expansion 
and construction, is thus a great 
threat to recovery. Most private 
experts say this is true, to a cer¬ 
tain extent—but the continuation of 
certain trends, with money growing 
.cheaper all the time, may lead to 
an unhealthy speculative boom in 
securities, to inflation, to higher liv¬ 
ing costs and to a collapse in bond 

Security exchange spokesmen 
have pointed out that present mar¬ 
ket activity can go too far, that it 
is the duty of all involved to avoid 
the obvious danger that can result 
from a security “boom." 

It is easy to become excessively 
optimistic at a time when money is 
cheap, and industrial production is 
soaring. It is not generally fe’.t 
that the current security values are 
too high—fear is held only for pos¬ 
sible exorbitant rises in those values 
in the future. 

To regulate the running and ope¬ 
rating of vehicles in the streets and 
highways within the corporate lim¬ 
its of the Town of Montevallo, Ala¬

Only twenty-one years ago—New York was linked with 
San Francisco. In less than ten years—North America’s 
telephones have been brought in voice-reach of 69 countries 
in evdry part of the world. 

During the last decade, there have been seven successive 
voluntary reductions in the "long distance” rates.

Ten Years Of Electrical Progress 
■» In Alabama 

A Review by Thomas W. Martin, President , 
Alabama Power Company 

r EN YEARS AGO the annual use of electricity per residential 
customer was only 391 kilowatt hours. The average for the year 
ending November, 193(5, was 1,13 k kilowatt hours per residential cus¬ 

Ten years ago the average price per kilowatt hour for residential 
tectric service was over 714c. The average today is only about 3 % c , 
and many customers purchase much of their electricity at lc. The 
decrease in average price has been S8/ 2 %.' (Note: The average price 
declined in EACH of rh- 10 vears.) 

Ten year;, ago we had 4 home 
economists to assist customers in 
getting the greatest use at lowest 
cost from their electrical equip¬ 
ment. Today there are 20 of these 
talented women at your call. 

Ten years ago electric light was 
just electric light. Today the 
principles of scientific lighting are 
embraced in modern lamps—I. E. S. 
Lamps—and you get more and bet¬ 
ter light for less money. 22 light¬ 
ing specialists are at your call. Ten 
years ago there was none. 

Ten years ago electric water heat¬ 
ers were in the experimental stage 
and expensive to use. Today they 
provide the accepted method of 
heating water in thousands of 
homes and the electricity for op¬ 
erating them comes at the lowest 

Ten years ago a practical electric 
dishwasher was the inventor’s 
dream. The clumsy, imperfect mo¬ 
dels ol a decade ago have been 
perfected, the price is within reach 
of modest incomes, and the most 
distasteful and unsanitary of kitch¬ 
en tasks is doomed to become a 
thing of the past. 

Ten years ago a “modern” elec¬ 
tric range cost $150; today a much 
better range—faster, prettier, more 
efficient—costs only $75. 

Ten years ago 374 miles of rural 
electric lines served Alabama 
farms. Today there are 3,850 
miles of such lines and 1,000 ad¬ 
ditional miles will be built dur¬ 
ing 1937. The number of miles 
of rural lines has increased each 
year of the decade—due to this 
company’s long interest in rural 

Ten years ago our taxes 
amounted to approximately $837,- 
000 for the year, or about $15 per 
customer. For 1936 they will be 
about $2,600,000 or about $23 per 


customer. The average amount of 
money we receive in a year from 
residential customers is about $37 
each. (More from same; much 
less from others.) 

Ten years ago the huge Martin 
and Jordan Dams in Tallapoosa and 
Elmore Counties had not been com¬ 
pleted, although construction was in 
progress. Construction had. not yet 
started on Tallassee and Thurlow 
Dams. Gorgas No. 2 Steam Plant in 
Walker County was still in the blue¬ 
print stage. 

Ten years ago we had already 
established the policy of lowering 
rates as often as prudent busi¬ 
ness judgment would permit; we 
had established and were pioneers 
in the electrification of rural 
Alabama; we were among the few 
statewide agencies promoting the 
development of Alabama’s agricul¬ 
tural and industrial resources; we 
had already developed a “grid sys¬ 
tem” in Alabama and in coopera¬ 
tion with electrical transmission 
systems in neighboring states. 
Many of these things became pos¬ 
sible because imaginative minds in 
this great industry are constantly at 
the service of the public. 

We look back on this record with 
justifiable pride, some of which you 
will perhaps share because these 
activities have been largely instru¬ 
mental in making Alabama one of 
the foremost electrically-minded 
states in the nation and making 
simpler and easier many irksome 
tasks in the home. 

We expect to continue these pro¬ 
gressive policies, so that ten years 
from today, you and we may again 
look back and say, “Well done!”

JAN. 18 and 19 

JAN. 20 and 21 


The prize winners of Parker’s 
Acre Contest, the officials of the 
Sylacauga ' Fertilizer Company, and 
many of the prominent agricultural 
leaders in the state, among whom 
Mr. J. C. Lowery, of the Extension 
Service at Auburn; Mr. Alexander 
Nunn, editor of the Progressive 
Farmer; Mr. A. A. Lauderdale, 
County Agent of Shelby County, 
and many others were guests of the 
Sylacauga Fertilizer Company and 
the Avondale Mills at a luncheon 
given at the Avondale Mills Tea 
Room. The luncheon was given for 
the boys who won the prizes, their 
fathers being invited also. The 
total number present was 43, and a 
delightful plate containing turkey 
and all that goes with it was serv¬ 

After the luncheon, Mr. _ H. A. 
Parker, of the Sylacauga Fertilizer 
Company, made a short talk: 
“After my father died six years ago 
I came Iwtck to Sylacauga. The 
cotton seed situation in this section 
was in very bad shape. We began 
to see immediately if we could do 
something to better the situation. 
The Avondale Mills had to ship in 
the long staple cotton they used 
from distances and eager to take a 
hand to help, Mr. Donald Comer 
and Mr. Craig Smith immediately 
co-operated with the Sylacauga 
Fertilizer Company. After talking 
with Mr. Lowery about this, we 
shipped in some Delta and Pine 
Land Seed then called 4-8. The 
next year w T e shipped in a ton of 
Delta Pine Land No. 11 and they 
turned out so well that the follow¬ 
ing year we shipped in a car. We 
all know how well these turned out 
in the three counties of Talladega, 
Shelby and Coosa. We have gotten 
to the place where we are going to 
have to raise the yield per acre if 
we expect to stay in the cotton 
business. After talking to 

proper fertilization and cotton 
the yield per acre could be greatly 

Mr. J. W. Brown then was intro¬ 
duced and was very optimistic it 

on the splendid manner in which 
they cooperated in the contest and 
made it a tremendous success. 

Mr. J. C. Lowery made a wonder¬ 
ful speech, emphasizing the farmer 
of Alabama must continue to raise 
a high grade of cotton. Mr. Low 
ery stated that a cotton buyer for 
one of the biggest concerns out¬ 
side of the state said that their 
concern had rather use Alabama 
cotton where a good quality was 
raised than any other kind. He 
said that last year we had 3 per 
cent short staple cotton and this 
year only five per cent and that we 
must do better than this. We must 
not let a high pressure salesman 
sell us a short staple seed but we 
must strive to grow a better qual¬ 
ity cotton. Get behind the fine 
work that has been started and car¬ 
ry the program on because you 
have made a fine start. We could 
have some of the best cotton in the 
South if we could eliminate short 
stjple -cotton. We have got to 
make a better yield, use the best 
quality cotton that it is possible 
for us to. The way to do this is 
by the proper soil conservation and 
the proper fertilizer with good seed. 
The tiling we should strive for is to 
make the most andi the best cotton 
we can to the acre. 1 hope that the 
good work that is started will be 
carried on. 

Several others spoke briefly, and 
among them was Mr. T. B. Russell, 
who paid a high tribute to Mr. 
Parker. Quote Mr. Russell: “I 
want to say that I think Mr. Parker 
is the most progressive man in the 
county as far as helping the farmer 
is concerned.” 

After the dinner the party went 
to Sylacauga, where Mr. Parker 
presented the boys with their prize 
after making another remarkable 

speech. The winners were as fol¬ 
lows : 

Talladega County—lsta and grand

Members of local church and tem¬ 
perance organizations will be inter¬ 
ested in the news of the merger of 
two. nationally known temperance 
organizations, contained in radio 
announcements made simultaneous¬ 
ly by Sam Morris, the Voice of 
Temperance, and Ethel Httbler, pub¬ 
lisher of National Voice, who have 
just combined their forces in order 
to launch a nation-wide radio edu¬ 
cational campaign, beginning on 
January 1st. 

Miss Hubler’s news comment¬ 
aries on the liquor question, "Re¬ 
peal News Flashes,” are now releas¬ 
ed to approximately 60 radio sta¬ 
tions in 29 different states. Mr. 
Morris, whose Voice of Temperance 
broadcast has been a regular radio 
feature for several years, now pre¬ 
sents a program three times a day 
over XERA, a 350,000 watt station, 
at 6 p.nt., 10:45 p.m. and 4:45 a.nt. 
Central Standard Time. 

As a result of the merger just 
effected, the Voice of Temperance 
and National Voice will coordinate 
their radio commentations on the 
liquor question, in conjunction with 
the National Voice, national tabloid 
weekly, which will continue to be 
published by Miss Hubler. 

Because of the tremendous power 
of XERA, the radio station over 
which the Voice of Temperance, 
National Voice feature, is broad¬ 
cast three times each day, these 
talks have a large regular audience 
in every state in the nation, in 
tada and in Mexico, as indicated 
by the hundreds of letters received 
ftom radio listeners each week.

Deep Bed of Fire Burns Less Fuel 
Than “Skimpy” One; Saves 
Time and Labor. 

A GREAT many home-owners 
1 A are under the impression that 
they save coal by putting cnly a 
little coal on a furnace fire. As a 
matter of fact, that’s one of the 
surest ways to actually waste fuel 
that I know of. A “flimsy” fire 
burns coal quickly, has a tendency 
to go out easily, won’t deliver suf¬ 
ficient heat, and makes repeated 
refueling necessary. 

The truly economical way is to 
keep a deep fire bed at all times. 
It should always be up to a level 
with the bottom of the firedoor. 
In mild weather, of course, you 
can leave a little heavier layer of 
ash on the grates. This will keep 
the fire burning very slowly, yet 
keep enough coal burning to 
provide sufficient heat should the 
outside temperature drop sudden¬ 

Let me repeat this warning: 
After putting fresh coal on the 
fire, be sure to leave an exposed 
spot of live coals directly in front 
of the fire-door. This “hot-spot” 
will act as a pilot light and ignite 
the gases that come up from the 
fresh fuel. Allow these gases to 
become totally burned before 
checking the fire.

swords, among the rarest 
and most beautiful of Hawai¬ 
ian plants, constitute one of 
the world’s prize puzzles in 
botany. Scientists of the Ber¬ 
nice Bishop Museum in Hon¬ 
olulu and of the Carnegie In¬ 
stitution of Washington, un¬ 
der the leadership of Dr. 
David D. Keck, have lately 
been making a new effort to 
get more definite facts about 
this spectacular plant’s kin¬ 
ships and origin, for it is be¬ 
lieved that through such data 
new light may be shed on the 
still greater scientific riddle 
of Hawaii’s unique forms of 
plant life, 

The silversword forms a ball-like 
cluster of narrow, sword-shaped 
leaves, white with a silvery coating 
of hairs. From this basal rosette 
there shoots up a three to six-foot 
flower stalk, thickly beset with 
blooms. The plant is a member of 
the huge botanical family known as 
the Compositae, which includes 
such familiar things as sunflowers, 
dandelions, artichokes, thistles, 
goldenrod, and lettuce. 

Not of American Ancestry. 

It has hitherto been considered 
more nearly related to the tarweeds. 
found on the Pacific coasts of both 
Americas, but Dr. Keck’s re¬ 
searches now indicate that it is not, 
and that the silversword is more 
nearly related to the tree-like com¬ 
posites of Hawaii, a very remark¬ 
able group of plants whose nearest 
kindred ’are found far southwest- 
wards across the Pacific, in Poly¬ 
nesia and the Australia-New Zea¬ 
land region. The elimination of an 
American ancestry of the silver 
swords, and their assignment 
to an origin in a diametrically op¬ 
posite direction, is considered an 
important step in plant geography,

Modern Baking Is 
[Freed From Trial 
and Error Method 

LONDON — How to tell 
what kind of bread a variety 
of flour will make before 
starting to bake it is told in 
recent researches by two 
British physical chemists 
Drs. P. Halton, of the Re 
search Association of British 
Flour Millers, and G. W 
Scott Blair, of the physics de 
partment of Rothamstead ex¬ 
perimental station. 

The "shortness” of a dough de¬ 
termines many characteristics of a 
finished bread or cake. By deter¬ 
mining this ease of tearing of the 
dough in a mechanical way it is 
hoped to bake even better prod¬ 
ucts than those that “mother used 
to make.” 

Scientists have attacked the prob 
lem by learning something about 
the fundamentals of baking. They 
have found that a short dough—one 
that tears easily—has long, heavy 

Novel Test Devised 
To determine shortness accurate¬ 
ly, they use an instrument that tells 
how easily dough will flow through 
a nozzle when the pressure that 
pushes it is increased. Using this 
tester, they find that they can make 
the dough shorter by adding lard, 
iron chloride, or a phosphate, and 
less short by adding amino acids. 
Most peculiar of these acids is cys¬ 
tine, which makes the dough fibers 
hang together by hooking the long, 
thin molecules in strands like a 
series of rope ladders. 

The tests are more sensitive than 
are those of the baker, and more 
accurate. Furthermore, they are 
resulting in changed flour charac¬ 
teristics so that the finished prod¬ 
uct can be rigorously controlled.

Nutritional Value 

Glamorous Is the New Lingerie 




C'OR the fair sex nothing so strikes 
1 the right note as beautiful lin¬ 
gerie. Seeing lovely "undies,” and 
coveting, is akin to that feeling one 
has in a garden of flowers, to add 
another and yet another to one’s 
bouquet plucked from among na¬ 
ture’s loveliest. Just so does the 
eternal feminine in us keep longing 
for one more and one more of the 
delectably colorful lace - trimmed 
silken nighties, slips, pantie sets, 
negligees, cunning bed-jackets and 
others such as designers are this 
season placing before the enrap¬ 
tured eyes of beauty-seeking wom¬ 

Even so, the esthetic viewpoint is 
but half the story, for there is a 
practical side to the question that 
those skilled in the art of dress 
keep ever In mind, namely, a cos¬ 
tume to be fashion-correct and of 
comely appearance must build from 
the foundation up. Wherefore, it is 
as important to have a wardrobe 
of lingerie as of outer apparel. 
Which is why creators of modern 
lingerie are devoting so much of 
time and talent, thought and study 
to the fashioning of under garments 
that because of their perfection of 
lines and subtle fit, act as “first-aid” 
toward the charm and style-right¬ 
ness of one’s costume. 

The nightgowns this season are 
nothing if not glamorous. Rich fab¬ 
rics and colors, beautiful finishes 
and elaborate lace trimmings mark 
them with distinction. Mostly they 
are satin, but you do see some of 
crept and silk ninon and georgette. 

Slips, too, are reflecting the in¬ 
terest in the daintier garments 
and gone are the utterly tailored 
effects. They are carefully fitted 
of course and even when they are 

not elaborately lace-trimmed as so 
many are, they still have details of 
lace and net trimmings, of tiny 
edgings of val lace to appeal to 
the well-groomed lady. 

There are all manner of negli¬ 
gees and hostess gowns. The satin 
ones, lavish with lace, are easily 
the most popular this season. Bed 
jackets of all shapes and types are 
more fascinating than ever. Some 
are made in cape design and tie 
loosely in front. The model shown 
in the center Inset is of allover 
lace with wide satin border front. 
In a way this charming little cape- 
bed-jacket might be classed with 
the so called lingerie accessories 
which Paris designers are advocat¬ 
ing this season. Such, for instance, 
is the “bib” to be worn oveF 
night dresses. It is a grand 
gift item for a convalescent or in¬ 
valid. It’s a frilly lace front piece 
to slip qn at a moment’s notice over 
the “nightie.” The one pictured in 
the upper inset is done in circular 
ruffles of lace with ribbon ties 
about the throat. It is said that 
it is becoming quite a fad to make 
your own lingerie accessories. 

Describing the lovely gowns pic¬ 
tured, the one to the left is of shell- 
pink satin with deep appliqued yoke 
of Alencon lace in the new light 
ecru shade which is so good this 
season. The lovely skirt edge, with 
its lace slit up the front, features 
the new trend toward fine details. 
Soft yellow is used for the ‘in¬ 
teresting nightdress on the seated 
figure with its diagonal neckline and 
one-side shoulder strap. The lace 
motifs applied are carried out also 
in the matching slip and panties 
which form the perfect ensemble.

Edward Molyneux, style author¬

color is the watchword. 

A wide range of blue tones is 
being accented in spring silks. 

Misty blues and strong purple- 
blues are new, and the middle tones 
of blue also register. Purple is new¬ 
ly accented. 

The capucine range is an impor¬ 
tant one. highlighting glowing yel¬ 
low - orange and pumpkin tones. 
Henna and horsechestnut rank high, 
with the former striking a new note 
for evening. A hint of ashes-of-roses 
overlays the copper range as it is 
interpreted for resort and spring 
1937. Brownish gold is another im¬ 
portant tone to watch. 

Beige and other neutral tones are 
expected to prove important, as a 
contrast to the vivid color ranges. 

The red range ranks high. Cherry 
red, cerise, ashes-of-roses, mauve 
pink and pale mauve red are lead¬ 
ing tones. 

A wide range of green tones in¬ 
cludes bright yellow green, tur¬ 
quoise green, reseda green and 
strong hues. 

Nothing is so flattering, so "new”

and going on for the evening date as

Burgos, "First City" of Rebel 

Spain, Has Intriguing History 

Venerable Place Was Once 
the Capital of Old 

Burgos, “capital” of rebel 
Spain, while new to the ears of 
present-day observers, has played 
an important part in the Spain 
of the past, says a bulletin from 
the Washington, D. C., headquar¬ 
ters of the National Geographic 

“Burgos, with only 32,000 in¬ 
habitants, rises from the heart 
of a rolling plateau about 130 
miles due north of Madrid,” con¬ 
tinues the bulletin. 

“As capital of the province of 
Burgos, it was normally a quiet 
city which the hard-working farm¬ 
ers, shepherds and foresters in 
the province used as their market 
place. Irrigated fields form green 
patchwork along the valley of the 
Arlanzon river, but much of the 
district surrounding the city :s 
arid and barren like parts of the 
tableland of Mexico. Where water 
is available, however, good crops 
thrive—chiefly grains and chick 

Once Capital of Old Castile. 

“While Burgos may have no 
boast as to high rank among ur¬ 
ban centers on the Iberian penin¬ 
sula, it is rich in history and in 
architectural treasures. Until 
1087, when the royal residence 
was moved to Toledo, it was the 
capital of Old Castile. It is hinted 
that the crumbling castle above 
the city is one of the main reasons 
for the name of Castile. 

“Even after the transfer of the 
royal residence, Burgos was. still 
the scene of much royal pomp, 
splendor, and treachery. Several 
kings were crowned there, and 
some were born within its walls. 

Perhaps Burgos’ most notorious 
son was King Pedro the Cruel, 
who was reputed to decorate his 
rooms with the heads of his vic¬ 

Columbus Welcomed Here. 

“Columbus, returning from his 
second expedition to the fabled 
New World, was welcomed by Fer¬ 
nando and Isabella in that pala¬ 
tial residence of old Burgos, the 
Casa de Cordon. The building still 
spreads its stone front across one 
side of the Plaza de Libertad. 

“Royal marriages attracted to 
Burgos the pageantry of medieval 
chivalry from more than one na¬ 
tion. England sent a Twelfth- 
century princess there to become 
a Spanish queen, and later came 
an English king and a French 
duke to claim Spanish wives.

“In Burgos was born El Cid, 
the national hero of Spain in the 
struggle to reconquer the country 
from the Moors. The hilltop cas-

Fillmore, “Luxury-Loving 
Monster,” Brou ght in Tub 

Uncritical writers are fond of 
observing that Millard Fillmore 
was the most uninspiring and 
least impressive of all Presidents. 
But he did one big thing for 
the country. He introduced the 
bathtub to official and polite so¬ 

Eighty-five years ago, a Cin¬ 
cinnati merchant imported one 
from England and Fillmore had 
a chance at it, and then he ordered 
the war department to call for 
bids. In 1851 the White House 
bathtub was installed and Fill¬ 
more was denounced as an un¬ 
holy plutocrat, a luxury-loving 
monster!—Tulsa World. 

tie, then a magnificent strong¬ 
hold, was the scene of his mar¬ 
riage to Ximena, who is buried 
with him in the Cathedral. One 
of the town’s saddest days was 
that of their hero’s return, when 
all doors were closed against him 
by the jealous king’s command, 
and the grieving populace had to 
do their hero-worshiping silently 
from their windows. 

“Remnants of warlike days sur¬ 
vive in the city. The castle, de¬ 
molished by the French after it 
had successfully resisted the 
forces of the mighty Wellington, 
flaunts its ruins from the hill. 
Four fortified gates remain, as 
well as a pleasant walkway, called 
the Paseo de los Cubos, the Prom¬ 
enade of the Tubs, because it 
passes a row of tublike circular 
bastions of the old wall. 

“On the outskirts of Burgos 
stands the convent of Las Huel- 
gas, to which only noble women 
were admitted. Its abbess for 500 
years ranked second only to the 
queen of Spain, and had power of 
life and death, ’the gallows and 
the knife,’ over all who can 
within her jurisdiction.” 


Ground grip tires 

bring a new freedom to the 
f a r m e r—f reedom to go 
anywhere, any time, in any 
weather. No longer do bad 
roads, snow and thaws mean 

In deep snow, mud or sand, 
Firestone Ground Grip Tires 
go right through without 
spinning or stalling — you can 
always get to town. 

The Firestone Ground Grip 
Tire was developed to overcome 
the difficulties of winter 
transportation on the farm. 
Firestone engineers, working 
under the personal direction of 
Harvey S. Firestone on his 
Columbiana, Ohio, farm, tested 

and proved the Ground Grip 
Tire under the worst possible 
weather and road conditions* 
This tire is so different in 
design and so superior in 
performance that a patent on it 
was issued by the United States 
Patent Office. The heavy rubber 
lugs of the tread are without 
equal for traction. They take 
hold and keep going where 
other tires get stuck — and. you 
don’t need chains. 

Don’t let bad roads and bad 
weather keep you isolated this 
winter. See your nearby

Though Montevallo has not won 
a basketball game this season, they 
have shown so much improvement 
they are expected to start winning 

On January 7 Montevallo played 
the Phillips “A.” squad in Birming¬ 
ham, and they got licked to the 
tune of 26 to 12, yet they showed 
so much ‘ improvement that the 
spirit of the Montevallo fans and 
team's coach are considerably 

The fact that Montevallo is im¬ 
proving was shown on January 8, 
when Montevallo again played Jem¬ 
ison. Although they didn't win, 
they lopped a good portion of their | 
opponents score off, beaten 19 to 

The player who is making the 
most improvement is Bill Fancher. 
Coach Collins is highly pleased with 
him as he is developing into a “swell’’ 
basketball player. 


As you all know, the 1936 M. H. 
S. football squad was the best that 
has ever been produced here. Nat¬ 
urally there are reasons for this 
team's success. 

There are probably two main rea¬ 
sons for this team’s success: (1) the 
splendid coach which Montevallo 
has, and (2) the fine spirit with 
which the members of the team had 
toward its work and toward each 
other. Of these two the latter is 
probably the most important be¬ 
cause it is so rare. 

But let's take them as we come 
to them. The coach we have in 
mind is, of course, Mr. Leon Hicks. 
Three years ago Coach Hicks left 
M. H. S on leave of absence to 
study at A. P. I. There he watched 
Auburn practice, and as a result has 
designed plays that put across the 
touchdowns. There are two types 
of football (1) the razzle-dazzle 
type, and(2) the steady, power type. 
Of these two Coach Hicks has 
chosen the latter, and in two years 
time has built up the finest team 
ever seen in Montvallo. 

Now for the second reason. Such 
fine spirit as was shown by the 1936 
team is rare. Usually there are 

stars on the team who either get 
swell-headed or some teammate or 
teammates get jealous of him and 
(tlliis spoils the fine spirit. Not 
only was the spirit fine toward each 
other, but toward their work it 
was good also. Though Coach 
Hicks does not drive his boys un¬ 
til they are dead; yet he expects 
each boy to do his best, and he gets 
fine response. Such a spirit in a 
team is rare, and we hope that it 
will continue. 

Next week this column will start 
a series that will take some boy 
from the graduating class that play¬ 
ed on the team, and tell what part 
he played in the team's success.

Nyvv York, Jan. 26 — Senators 
and Congressmen of both major 
parties are joining whole-heartedly 
with the national committee for the 
President s Birthday Ball in their 
plans for making the nation-wide 
celebration January 30 even more 
successful than those of the prev¬ 
ious years, Colonel Henry L. Doh¬ 
erty, for the fourth time national 
chairman, said today. 

The response from legislators, he 
said, was typical of that of the en¬ 
tire country. The division of re¬ 
ceipts, seventy per cent for local 
work in the rehabilitation of suf¬ 
ferers from infantile paralysis, and 
thirty per cent to be presented to 
the President to be turned over to 
Warm Springs Foundatiion for the 
national fight, made a general ap¬ 
peal, he found. 

Senator Homer T. Bone of Wash¬ 
ington, expressed his view of the 
importance of the Birthday Bail 
campaign in a message to national 
headquarters. He said: “Without 
good health life is hitter at its best. 
The Birthday Ball is a front-line \ 
attack on one of the- nation’s chief 
health enemies — infantile paralysis. 

Senator Tom Connally of Texas, 
wrote: “The high percentage of 
funds ' secured from the- ball re¬ 
maining in local communities is an 
inspiration to those communities to 
do all in their power to secure local 

Representative Walter Chandler, 
Tennessee: “What a privilege it is 
for the American people to join in 
this material expression of our 
good wishes to the President and 
those in charge of the fight against 
the dreaded scourge of childhood.” 

Representative Robert Ramspeck 
of Georgia : “I am in a position to 
say there is no finer undertaking 
in existence in our country." 

Representative Caroline O’Day, 
New \ ork : “What they arc doing 
at Warm Springs for the victims 
of this dreaded scourge can be 
done and should be done through¬ 
out the United States." 

Representative Guy M. Gillette,, 
Iowa : “Tlie thought of the ravag¬ 
es and effects of this disease are a 
nightmare to every father ana 
mother in the United States.” 

Representative Edward A. Kenny 
of New Jersey: “A more worthy 
cause could not be found.” 

Representative Knute Hill, of 
Washington: “I consider these par¬ 
ties represent the inherent unself¬ 
ishness of the American people.” 

Colonel Doherty said the above 
endorsements were picked at ran¬ 
dom from a flood of communica¬ 
tions received at national head¬ 
quarters' and were typical of the 
response being made this year to 
plans for the birthday celebrations. 

Post Office May 
Be Moved Sunday 


Dr. E. G. Givlian motored to Bir¬ 
mingham Monday. 

Miss Elizabeth Hill, of Siluria, 
missed the $100 jack pot at the 
Strand Theatre last Wednesday 

Miss Mary Moore is very ill at 
her home in Dry Valley. 

Mrs. Sally Latham has been on 
the sick list for several days. 

Miss Myrtle Clonninger is recov¬ 
ering from a recent illness. 

Mrs. Denson Elliott, Dr. Hallie 
Farmer, Dr. Minnie Steckel and 
Miss Nell Sanders attended the 
Fourth District Convention of the 
Business and Prifessional Women 
in Tuscaloosa Saturday. They re¬ 
port a most enjoyable trip. 

Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Kelly an¬ 
nounce the birth of a little son on 
January 23. Mrs. Kelly and baby 
are at South Highland Infirmary, in 

Dr. and Mrs. M. L. Orr were visit¬ 
ors in Montgomery Tuesday. 

Postmaster R. A. Reid says that 
he has orders to move the postof¬ 
fice into the. new building, but he 
is not yet certain when the move 
will take place. He plans to make 
it next Sunday, provided some oth¬ 
er minor details can be settled by 
that time. 

Meanwhile Mr. Reid wishes to 
remind the public that he has the 
diagrams for new lock boxes on 
hand at the old postoffice, and 
wishes all who desire boxes at the 
new postoffice to make arrange¬ 
ments as quickly as possible so | 
there will be no interruption in I 
mail service after moving into the 
new place. The new boxes vyill be 
opened with keys instead of com¬ 
bination. Boxholdcrs may have 
one. two, or. three keys, upon which 
a deposit of twenty cents for each 
key is required. 

Official inspection of the new 
building was made by a government 
representative Tuesday. There re¬ 
mains only a few very minor de¬ 
tails to be worked out after which 
the job of construction will be en¬ 
tirely completed. 

The Postmaster desires to give 
the public an opportunity to sec 
through the interior of the build¬ 
ing before it is occupied, which he 
will do by declaring an open house 
one day, if he can arrange to do so. 

It it develops that the move can be 
made Sunday, he will probably de¬ 
clare Saturday' as visiting day for 
everybody at the new building. 

"1 here will be some confusion 
and interruptions in the service dur 
ing the transfer to the new building, 
at the best we can do,” Mr. Reid 
said, “but the entire force will do 
our very best to hold those things 
down to the very minimum. We 
hope that the patrons of the of¬ 
fice will be patient andi considerate 
with us, and we assure them that 
we will get over the moving and get 
everything to working smoothly 
just as quickly as is physically pos¬

at the Elementary school auditor- | struck,

Mr. C. G. Dobbins, chairman of 
the Montevallo community commit¬ 
tee for the West Shelby Emergency 
Welfare Organization, reports that 
highly satisfactory response has 
been made by the people of the 
community to this appeal. 

"It is regarded as certain,” Mr, 
Dobbins said, “that tlije people of 
Montevallo will subscribe their goal 
for this cause, judging from the 
splendid response we have had from 
our solicitations so far.” 

T he central committee sponsoring 
this emergency welfare movement 
express the hope that other com¬ 
munities in tJie area of West Shelby 
will hasten their organizations and 
complete solicitations as early as

Mrs. Dunn has had. Formerly a

sition as policewoman of the Met' 
tropolitam Police Department in

present and future legislation per¬ 
taining to women and their interests

throughout the state will attend.

singing of old tunes, consisting of 
several old familiar tunes. Every¬ 
one relaxed to the hand shaking

laughter. Miss Elsie Schneider, of

clever manner, the games which

in this glorious service to humanity, 
or we are remote speehrrork The

istering to the suffering in the vast 
flood area. A further emergency 
appeal is being made through the 
local Red Cross Chapter this week. 

I hose who have not had a part in 
Red Cross contributions through 
membership now have an opportun¬ 
ity to get a Partnership in Glory 
by giving something to the emerg¬ 
ency appeal. Those who are mem¬ 
bers may, further aid the cause by 
responding to the call of emergency 
which, in this instance, is great in¬

the Shelby County Chapter of the 
American Red Cross, issued an ap¬ 
peal to the people of Shelby Coun- 
t\ Monday for contributions 
through the Chapter for the aid of 
the flood sufferers of the terribly 
stricken Ohio River valley area, 
where many thousands of people 
have been left homeless. 

Miss Brooke stated that the L. 
& N. Railroad offers free trans¬ 
portation for all materials that are 
assembled for shipment into the dis¬ 
aster area, and the appeal is made 
for blankets, quilts, coats, over¬ 
coats, and cash contributions. 

1 lie following committees were 
designated by Miss Brooke to make 
solicitation of contributions in this 
community: Dr. P. C. Wilson, Mor¬ 
ris Watson, Mrs. Stanley Mahan, 
Mrs. Denson Elliott.

President Roosevelt in Inaugural Address Pledges Aid 
for Forty Million Under-Privileged—Secretary 
Perkins Tries to Break Motor Strike Deadlock. 


© Western Newspaper Union. 



L OFTY ideals, beautifully worded 
and eloquently voiced. That 
seems to be a fair description of 
the second inaugural address of 
Franklin Delano 
Roosevelt. Standing 
bareheaded on the 
capitol portico in a 
cold, pelting rain, 
he took the oath of 
office administered 
by black robed 
Chief Justice 
Hughes, and then, 
in ringing words 
carried by radio to 
the ends of the 
earth, he pledged 
his administration 
to carry on its fight for the social 
security and material prosperity 
and happiness of the entire people 
of the United States. In effect, he 
promised that the federal govern¬ 
ment would bring about a better 
life for one-third of the nation now 
underprivileged, and that the pro¬ 
gram of planned economy would 
be continued. For forty millions 
who are not getting their share of 
the nation’s material benefits the 
government will provide homes, 
food, clothing, education, recreation 
and increased incomes. 

The President's listeners inter¬ 
preted some of his phrases as a 
challenge to the Supreme court, as 
when he said: 

“Nearly all of us recognize that 
as intricacies of human relation¬ 
ships increase, so power to govern 
them also must increase—power to 
stop evil; power to do good. The 
essential democracy of our nation 
and the safety of our people depend 
not upon the absence of power but 
upon lodging it with those whom 
the people can change or continue 
at stated intervals through an hon¬ 
est and free system of elections. 
The constitution of 1787 did not 
make our democracy impotent. 

"In fact, in these last four years, 
we have made the exercise of all 
power more democratic; for we 
have begun to bring private auto¬ 
cratic powers into their proper sub¬ 
ordination to the public’s govern¬ 
ment. The legend that they were 
invincible—above and beyond the 
processes of democracy—has been 
shattered. They have been chal¬ 
lenged and beaten.’’ 

Before the inauguration cere¬ 
monies, Mr. Roosevelt and mem¬ 
bers of his family attended a special 
service in St. John's Episcopal 
church. After delivering his address 
the President reviewed the military 
parade from a cupola built in front 
of the White House. In addition to 
the soldiers, sailors and marines, 
samples of the Civilian Conserva¬ 
tion corps and of the National Youth 
administration were in the line, as 
were the governors of 46 states with 
their staffs. 

CES PERKINS herself undertook 
the difficult task of breaking the 
renewed deadlock in the General 
Motors strike, but 
at this writing she 
had not made much 
progress. Governor 
Murphy of Michi¬ 
gan, who went to 
Washington for the 
helped her, arrang¬ 
ing separate meet¬ 
ings with John L. § 

Lewis, C. I. O. lead- k / ■ • 
er, and President ^ ° 

Sloan of the motor 
corporation. But his 
efforts to bring these two gentle¬ 
men together seemed futile. Lew¬ 
is summoned Homer Martin, head 
of the striking union, and John 
Brophy, C. I. O. lieutenant, from 
Detroit and conferred with them 
on “strategy”. All the union lead' 
ers appeared supremely confident, 
and Lewis insisted the demand that 
the union be recognized as the sole 
bargaining agency must be conced¬ 
ed if there were to be any strike 
settlement negotiations, 

Secretary Perkins, after talking 
with both sides, went directly to 
the White House. She said she was 
“keeping the President informed” 
of developments. The belief was 
general that it would be necessary 
to invoke the personal aid of Mr. 
Roosevelt to brin| about a peace¬ 
ful settlement. 

Lewis brought about the tempo¬ 
rary suspension of negotiations by a 
statement he gave the press. With 
brutal frankness he said: 

“We have advised the secretary 
of labor that the ’economic royal¬ 
ists’—and the du Ponts and Mr. 
Sloan are among them—used their 
money to try to drive Mr. Roose 
velt out of the White House. 

“Labor rallied to the President’s 
support when they attacked him. 

“These same economic royalists 
now have their fangs in labor, and 
labor now expects the government 
to support labor in its legal and 
logical objectives. 

This was too much for Sloan, who 
started for home with the remark 
“We find it useless to attempt any 
further negotiations in Washington. 



Any time the President sends for us 
we'll be there.” 

Lewis’ position was strengthened 
by the settlement of the Pittsburgh 
Plate Glass company strike and in¬ 
creased prospects that Libbey- 
Owens-Ford glass workers would 
return to their jobs. His strategy 
has been to curtail General Motors 
production, and interfere with its 
principal competitors. Ford and 
Chrysler, as little as possible. Re¬ 
sumption of production by glass 
manufacturers would permit Ford 
and Chrysler to produce at full 
speed while sit-down strikers keep 
General Motors plants inoperative. 

C ONGRESS did not wait for the 
inauguration to rush through 
the bill asked by the President ex¬ 
tending for two and one-half years 
his power to control the two 
billion dollar stabilization fund and 
to devalue the dollar. Senator Van- 
denberg and Representative Snell, 
minority leaders, made futile ef- 
fofts to amend the measure so that 
it would call on the secretary of the 
treasury to submit to congress a 
complete audit and report upon 
the operations of the fund after the 
expiration date in 1939. 

The fund originated three years 
ago at the time of the 40 per cent 
debasement of the dollar. Gold 
holdings of private individuals, 
banks and the reserve banks com¬ 
mandeered by the Treasury, were 
revalued”. Each ounce of gold 
formerly valued officially at $20.67 
an ounce was arbitrarily raised to 
$35 an ounce. This resulted in a two 
billion, 800 million dollar “profit” 
for the Treasury. 

The odd 800 millions was imme¬ 
diately diverted to the Treasury’s 
general account to cover federal 
expenditures. Two billions were al¬ 
located for use as a “stabiliza¬ 
tion” fund. New legislation was 
passed authorizing the secretary 
of the treasury to use the stabiliza¬ 
tion fund to manipulate the value 
of the dollar in foreign exchange 
transactions, to purchase silver and 
gold and to rig the quotations on 
United States government securities 
in the market. 

D ispatches from Vatican city 
said the condition of Pope Pius 
XI was steadily growing worse. He 
was suffering excruciating pain, 
especially in the 
right leg. The pon¬ 
tiff, however, insist¬ 
ed on conducting 
some of the business 
of his office, telling 
Archbishop Castigli- 
oni he was deter¬ 
mined to work a s 
long as breath re¬ 
mained in his body. 

The pope was 
greatly distressed to 
hear of the death of 1 ope ^ 1US 
Bishop M. J. Gallagher of Detroit, 
the superior of Father Charles 
Coughlin, “radio priest." Bishop 
Gallagher made a visit to the Vati¬ 
can about six months ago. 

J OSEPH E. DAVIES, our new am¬ 
bassador to Russia, arrived in 
Moscow and at once declared: “It 
is amazing! Russia is one of the 
most interesting countries in the 
world." Then he and his party of 
ten moved into Spasso house, the 
official residence of the ambassador, 
and prepared for a lively social 

The envoy’s group was preceded 
to the capital by another party of al¬ 
most equal size, including maids, 
chauffeurs, other house servants, a 
personal physician. Commander N. 
W. Bunkley of the United States 
navy, and others. Mr. Davies said 
he intended to entertain extensively 
but not on the lavish plan previous 
reports had intimated. 

R epresentatives of five rail¬ 
way brotherhoods who have 
been in conference in Chicago de¬ 
cided to demand a 20 per cent 
raise in wages for the members of 
those unions, numbering about 250,- 
000. These are employees in the 
train service classification—conduc¬ 
tors, engineers, firemen, trainmen 
and switchmen. 

Based on the October, 1936, pay 
roll statistics issued by the inter¬ 
state commerce commission, a 20 
per cent pay raise for these work¬ 
ers would require an increase of 
116 million dollars in the annual 
pay rolls of the country’s railroads. 
The total pay roll for 251,598 train 
service employees last October 
was $48,623,261.

R UMORS were current in Wash¬ 
ington that Dr. Arthur E. Mor¬ 
gan would soon resign as chairman 
of the Tennessee Valley authority 
as the result of his 
long and bitter dis¬ 
agreement with Di¬ 
rector David Lilien- 
thal over TVA poli¬ 
cies. Both the gen¬ 
tlemen were in the 
capital and it ap¬ 
peared they had 
laid their cases be- | 
fore President | 

Roosevelt for his | 
decision as to which § 
should be the lead¬ 
er. Lilienthal, who 
was formerly Wisconsin 
commissioner under Gov. Phil La 
Follette, favors unrelenting war¬ 
fare on private utility interests. 
Doctor Morgan, on the other hand, 
doesn’t want a “fight to a finish” 
but, rather, a co-operative effort 
to pool public and private electric¬ 
ity in the Southeast in order to end 
TVA’s legal war with the private 
interests. The chairman, however, 
stood almost alone among those who 
are shaping the administration’s 
power policy. He issued a state¬ 
ment to the press setting forth his 
views but it didn’t arouse much 
sympathy in high circles. 

Decision in the controversy is nec¬ 
essary soon for the first big con¬ 
tract between TVA and private util¬ 
ity interests expires February 3 and 
the question of renewal must be set¬ 
tled before then. 

Drafting of a national power pol¬ 
icy was asked by the President of 
a committee headed by Secretary 
of the Interior Ickes. He said 
that this policy, once established, 
would apply to all existing projects 
and to new power developments as 
they are completed. 

T HE conflict between fascism 
and communism in the Old 
World grows more intense day by 
day, and the German Nazi leaders 
insist every nation must espouse 
one side or the other. Air Minister 
Goering declares England especially 
should align herself with Germany 
and Italy, but Foreign Minister 
Eden in a speech before parliament 
virtually handed back to Germany 
the question of Europe's fate. “We 
cannot cure the world by pacts or 
treaties,” said he, “or by political 
creeds, no matter what they be.” 
He demanded to know whether Ger¬ 
many intended to use the “mani-' 
fold gifts of her people to restore 
confidence to a world sick of an¬ 
tagonism," or “to the sharpening of 
international antagonism and a pol¬ 
icy of even greater economic isola¬ 

German officials called Eden’s 
speech “untimely;” and Ulrich von 
Hassel, German ambassador to 
Italy, speaking in Cologne, described 
the “axis of Rome-Berlin” as a 
“central pivot around which the 
whole of Europe revolves.” 

“Germany and Italy,” he said, 
“are destined to fight the false doc¬ 
trines of the east (Russia) and sur¬ 
mount western capitalism. Germany 
and Italy are neither east nor west, 
but the center, and Europe will be 
able to keep in harmony only if 
they remain the strong central ax¬ 

It was said in Berlin that a mixed 
German-Japanese commission has 
been named to carry out provisions 
of the Berlin-Tokio anti-communist 
agreement of last November. 

Over in Japan Foreign Minister 
Hachiro Arita opened the parlia¬ 
ment with a speech in which he 
declared communism was to blame 
for the political troubles of the world. 
He defended the German-Japanese 
pact as directed only against com¬ 
munism and not intended to foment 
dispute with world powers. He ad¬ 
vocated that all colonial possessions 
of all nations be opened to free 

H oward hughes, wealthy 
manufacturer, motion picture 
producer and amateur aviator, set 
a new record for the flight from 
Burbank, Calif., to New York—7 
hours 28 minutes, 25 seconds. It 
was an astonishing performance. 

Hughes’ average speed for 2,490 
miles over what he calls a “modi¬ 
fied great circle course” was 332 
miles per hour. This achievement 
is the greatest sustained speed 
flight ever made. 

The flight was made without a 
stop, the cruising altitude being 
about 14,000 feet, and the motor of 
the plane could not be allowed to 
operate at full throttle for more 
than a small fraction of the time. 
The top speed reached was 380 
miles an hour. 



B RITAIN’S plan to bar from Spain 
volunteers from other na¬ 

tions met with a big setback when 
Russia refused to adopt prohibitive 
measures. Foreign Commissar 

Maxim Litvinov handed to Ambas¬ 
sador Chilston a note saying: 

“The Soviet government, although 
it presently does not practice the 
dispatch of volunteer detachments, 
does not consider it expedient to 
adopt unilateral prohibitive meas¬ 

Explaining the refusal, Litvinov 
continued: “I consider it necessary 
to point out .that in the Soviet gov¬ 
ernment’s opinion unilateral, pro¬ 
hibitive measures on the part of 
seme participants in the London 
committee (on nonintervention) 
while other participants not only 
are free from obligations, but con¬ 
tinue sending military divisions to

plish the desired aim but will result 
in intervention.”

Guest Perry Tells 
Relief That Press 
Now Has Answer 


Fred Perry, the world’s leading ama¬ 
teur tennis player up to the time he 
gave up his simon-pure standing to 
challenge F.llsworth Fines, tops in the 
professional ranks for the all<omers 
supremacy in a series of matches to he 
played throughout the United Stales, 
tells how it feels to be a pro and why 
he became Hugh Bradley’s guest col¬ 
umnist for today. 

NE of the best things about be¬ 
ing a professional tennis player 
is that I no longer have to answer 
questions fired at me by inquir¬ 
ing reporters a thousand times a 
day—or so it seemed—as to whether 
I was going to turn pro and, if not, 
why not. No young swain ever was 
quizzed as persistently by the father 
of his girl friend concerning his in¬ 
tentions toward the daughter as I 
was up to the time I signed up. 

Your sports writers have had a 
lot of fun with me and have prom¬ 
ised me, in their articles, more mon¬ 
ey than I could hope to earn out 
of the game the rest of my life. 
But they’re good fellows and I’ve 
enjoyed my contacts with them im¬ 
mensely. That goes for the rest of 
the people I’ve met in your hos¬ 
pitable country, too. You’ve been 
very kind to me and I’m looking for¬ 
ward to getting better acquainted 
with you as I travel about the coun¬ 

I may as well forestall the In¬ 
evitable question from my friends 
of the press and tell 
how it feels to be a 
professional. So far 
have no regrets 
over turning pro, al¬ 
though I expect to 
have a few twinges 
while making some 
of the sleeper jumps 
on tour. I had gone 
as far as I could in 
the amateur ranks 
and think I did my 
duty toward Eng¬ 
land in Davis Cup 
play. I shall be sorry if she loses 
the cup through my action, but be¬ 
lieve I’m entitled to cash in on my 
tennis while the cashing is good. 
Donald Budge gave me a none too 
gentle hint at Forest Hills last fall 
that it would not be long now. 

I have never anticipated with 
greater interest gny series of 
matches than those I am now hav¬ 
ing with Ellsworth Vines. We met 
several times when we both were 
amateurs and had close fights on 
every occasion. 

Since Ellie turned pro three years 
ago we haven’t played officially but 
know he has improved tremen¬ 
dously. But I’ve been keeping my 
hand in as much as possible and 
hope to give him a good fight. The 
canvas court used on our tour is 
entirely new to me and will be a 
considerable handicap till I become 
familiar with it. It’s quite different 
from grass, clay or the cement sur¬ 
face I’ve been practicing on. 

I’m going to get a big kick out of 
opposing Tilden in doubles, as well 
as facing Vines in singles. In my 
younger days in England I stood in 
awe of Big Bill and still have a 
wholesome respect for his game. 
But with George Lott, one of the 
finest doubles players of all time, 
as my partner I’ll take the court 
against Tilden and Vines more con¬ 
fidently than I could hope to other¬ 

I have been asked how my de¬ 
cision to enter the professional 
ranks was received in England. Not 
having been there since my status 
changed I have no first-hand knowl¬ 
edge of the reaction but, judging 
from reports, I think most British 
sports followers approve of the step 
I have taken and realize it was the 
only logical one for me. 

One of these days, as Rene La- 
Ooste used to say, there will be no 
amateurs and professionals — just 
tennis, players. Open tournaments 
are bound to come, but nobody can 
tell when. 

Well, cheerio!

Washington.—Two messages to 
congress by the President have 
created more 
Messages than the usual ex- 
Cause Stir citement attend¬ 
ant upon such 
things, as the new session set¬ 
tled down to its annual considera¬ 
tion of public affairs. In each of 
these were Presidential declara¬ 
tions that are beginning to rever¬ 
berate and that means they are 
highly controversial. 

In Mr. Roosevelt's annual mes¬ 
sage “on the state of the Union,” 
he took occasion to tell congress 
how much he appreciated its “co¬ 
operation” with him. He followed 
that bit of back patting with prob¬ 
ably the boldest statement he has 
made since entering the White 
House four years ago for the first 
term. He called upon the Supreme 
Court of the United States, in a 
roundabout way to "co-operate” 
with the other two branches of the 
government, the legislative and ex¬ 

The other wave of excitement, not 
to say disturbance, was caused by 
the President’s special message 
asking congress for a wholesale re¬ 
organization of the executive de¬ 
partments and agencies—calling 
this proposal a plan for moderniz¬ 
ing the government. 

One can circulate through the cor¬ 
ridors and offices of the Capitol 
and office buildings and hear mut- 
terings aplenty and even a consid¬ 
erable bit of outspoken criticism 
by senators and representatives of 
the two circumstances I have men¬ 
tioned. There are many members 
of the legislative branch who are 
entertaining a feeling that the de¬ 
mand for Supreme court co-opera¬ 
tion was equivalent to carrying the 
ball out of bounds. But that part 
of the Presidential pronouncement 
is not likely, in the end, to produce 
the battle on the floor of the senate 
or house that will result from some 
phases of his “modernizing” pro¬ 

The fact is that our national gov¬ 
ernment has become a structure, 
insofar as the executive agencies 
are concerned, that sprawls out like 
an octopus. About 75 per cent of 
these units and agencies are prod¬ 
ucts of the New Deal recovery 
program; they work at cross pur¬ 
poses; they move in their own 
sphere and make their own poli¬ 
cies with almost no direction from 
the White House. Certainly, the 
time is ripe to clean up that mess 
Yet, in cleaning up these condi¬ 
tions, in reorganizing, it is undoubt 
edly the consensus of those charged 
with responsibility for the job that 
common sense must be used and 
discretion employed or else untold 
damage will be done to the govern¬ 
ment and to the whole economic 
structure of the nation, including 
the taxpayers. 

* • • 

The Presidential reorganization 
program was sweeping in charac¬ 
ter and that is the 
Reorgantza - reason why it has 
tion Program run into obstacles. 

For example, the 
plan calls for placing the interstate 
commerce commission, the general 
accounting office, the federal trade 
commission and the civil service 
commission largely inside of old 
established departments over which 
cabinet officers preside. Now, 
cabinet officer is and always has 
been in the past a political ap¬ 
pointee, an individual who had been 
active in promotion of a party cam¬ 
paign and usually one who has 
made important contributions of 
money to his party’ s campaign 
fund. So, it becomes plainly evi¬ 
dent, I believe, that to place such 
agencies as those I have named in 
regular departments, is to place 
them completely under political 

Where it is good, therefore, to 
place strictly administrative agen¬ 
cies under cabinet control, it be¬ 
comes equally dangerous to place 
under political domination such 
quasi-judicial agencies as the ICC 
and the general accounting office. 
There can be no doubt of that fact. 
That is the crux of the disturb¬ 
ance among the legislators under 
the reorganization proposal. 

Those of us who have had long 
experience as writers and observ¬ 
ers in Washington have seen evi¬ 
dence in almost every adminis¬ 
tration of attempts of politicians to 
get their fingers into the pie of rail¬ 
road - rate making. They have adopt¬ 
ed all sorts of tricks; they have used 
subterfuges and they have em¬ 
ployed strong political pressure 
time after time to gain control of 
railroad rate making. Through all 
of these years since the ICC was 
established, there has always been 
enough sane minds in congress who, 
with White House backing, could 
resist this political move. Natur¬ 
ally, therefore, it is a matter of 
some question why President Roose¬ 
velt should attempt to toss the in¬ 
terstate commerce comission and 

Lacy Squares Form 
a Spread or Scarf 

it rate making power straight in¬ 
to the laps of the politicians. 

Of course, the Presidential mes¬ 
sage on this point appears on its 
face to provide against the end that 
I have mentioned but old timers in 
congress point out how this wedge, 
driven only a little further, will 
bring about political domination of 
the ICC. 

• • • 

It is hardly necessary here to set 
down all of the potential dangers 
that can emanate 
Potential from political con- 

Dangers trol °* such a vast 

structure as the 
railroads of the United States. It 
is unlimited in its possibilities. Dan¬ 
gers are inherent in any program 
of that kind with which the politi¬ 
cians are identified and it appears 
to be a circumstance in which con¬ 
gress, if it is going to serve the 
people properly, should call a halt. 

As to the general accounting of¬ 
fice and the plan to include it in 
the Treasury again under the rule 
of an auditor general, the reorgani¬ 
zation scheme simply will set con¬ 
trol of public expenditures back a 
quarter of a century. One of the 
earlier Presidents made no effort 
to conceal the use that could be 
made of the auditing unit of the gov¬ 
ernment when he said, on an occa¬ 
sion where the chief auditor ruled 
an expenditure illegal, that if it 
were not possible to change the 
ruling under the law, it still was 
possible to change the chief auditor. 

I am not making a charge that 
the present administration desires 
to spend congressional appropria¬ 
tions illegally; but one cannot dodge 
the conversations that are taking 
place around the Capitol in which 
legislators recall how President 
Roosevelt criticized John R. Me Carl 
when he was comptroller general 
for a decision that prevented use 
of public money in a manner de¬ 
sired by the President. To sum up 
this particular phase of the situ¬ 
ation, one hardly need to say more 
than that if the auditor general 
is a subordinate of the Secretary 
of the Treasury, he is likely to take 
orders from the Secretary of the 
Treasury, whoever that Secretary 
may be. And, since the Secretary 
of the Treasury, is an appointee of 
the President and serves only at 
the President’s pleasure, in my 
mind a link is established where¬ 
by the White House again will con¬ 
trol determination of legality and 
illegality of expenditures. 

Congress created the general ac¬ 
counting office in order that it would 
have an agency independent of the 
Chief Executive and the executive 
departments to keep tab on how 
those executive agencies expend¬ 
ed the money which congress ap¬ 
propriated. That was the reason 
why the office of comptroller gen¬ 
eral was made to carry a fifteen- 
year appointment with removal only 
for malfeasance or misfeasance. 
Now it is proposed to tear down 
that structure and bring the whole 
auditing organization under a cab¬ 
inet officer. 

But there is another phase to be 
considered. It has been my good 
fortune to be in Washington dur¬ 
ing the entire life of the general 
accounting office as well as for sev¬ 
eral years before. Of my knowl¬ 
edge, I can say that the general 
accounting office has recovered mil¬ 
lions of dollars of illegally disbursed 
funds as well as prevented illegal 
disbursement of other millions.

There seems to be more support 
for inclusion of the civil service 
commission in the 
Civil form of a civil 

Service service adminis¬ 

trator under an 
executive department than there is 
support for breaking up of the fed¬ 
eral trade commission as the Presi¬ 
dent proposed. Neither of these 
agencies has such an important 
bearing on the public as a whole 
as do the other two I have dis¬ 
cussed. The plan to make the civil 
service administration subject to 
cabinet control was softened con¬ 
siderably by the President by inclu¬ 
sion of a proposal to make all gov¬ 
ernment employees below policy¬ 
making grades subject to civil serv¬ 
ice laws. That is a big step for¬ 
ward, provided it is not a ruse to 
permit packing the lists with ad¬ 
herents of one political party or the 
other, whichever may be in power. 

The federal trade commission, 
like the interstate commerce com¬ 
mission, is a quasi-judicial body, 
There has been objection to its pres 
ent setup as prosecutor, judge and 
jury but many legislators believe 
this can be corrected without emas¬ 
culating the agepey and destroy¬ 
ing its identity by putting it into 
an executive department. It ought 
to be free and independent and 
ought not to have any politician 
in a cabinet chair telling it what to 
do when it seeks to make business 
be honest.

That evening Doctor Greeding left 
the house after dinner. Mary Ann 
was at the office when he got there 
and for two or three hours they 
worked together. Afterward he in¬ 
sisted on taking her home; and on 
the way, he said: 

“I’m going to drop everything and 
head for the Lake as soon as possi 
ble. I’ll want you to finish analyze 
iftg these cases, and bring the fig' 
ures up to me. After I’ve had 
few days’ rest. Say next Friday? 

He saw hesitation in her, and he 
added swiftly: “I’ll want you there 
for a few days; and perhaps Nancy 
can persuade you to stay on for a 
while, even after our job is done.” 
She wished to demur; but be¬ 
fore she could do so, he said hur¬ 
riedly: "I’ll need to work, this year, 
to keep from—thinking!” 

She said, in quick compre¬ 
hension: "Of course. I under¬

she had seemed almost ill at ease 
in his presence. Yet not unfriend'

the grief she thought he must be

no grief. That first wave of sorrow

Genius—the capacity for taking 

Less Monthly Discomfort 

Many women, who formerly suf¬ 
fered from a weak, run-down con¬ 
dition ns a result of poor assimila¬ 
tion of food, say they benefited by 
taking CARDUI, a special medicine 
for women. They found It helped to 
Increase the appetite and Improve 
digestion, thereby bringing them 
more strength from their food. 

Naturally there is less discomfort 
at monthly periods when the system 
has been strengthened and the vari¬ 
ous functions restored and regulated. 

Cardui, praised by thousands o£ women, 
Is well worth trying. Of course. If not 
benefited, consult a physician.

Their first days at the Lake 
passed quietly. It had been de¬ 
cided between Dan and Nancy that 
he would come on Friday afternoon, 
with Mary Ann. Nancy had not 
told her father this arrangement, 
Without admitting it even to her¬ 
self, she feared some objection on 
Doctor Greeding’s part, and avoid 
ed the possibility by her silence. 

Doctor Greeding expected Mary 
Ann's arrival by the evening train 
on Friday; and he spoke of it to 
Nancy at dinner Thursday night in 
such tones that she looked at him 
doubtfully, discovering something 
incredible and startling in his eyes. 

She tried to put the thought aside. 
It could not be. And yet this un¬ 
believable possibility suggested by 
her father's tone when he spoke of 
Mary Ann remained in her mind 
disturbingly, and her sleep that 
night was uneasy, shaken by shad¬ 
ows of formless dreams. She was 
awake to welcome dawn; and went 
early for a swim. 

When she was dressed and down¬ 
stairs again, her father still had 
not appeared, so she breakfasted 

Seeing Thomas, she asked him 
where her father was. Thomas 

“He had his breakfast and took 
his pistol up to the tennis-court, 

She went to join her father there 
and found him in a smiling hu¬ 
mor. “Hullo, Nancy!” he called, 
as she approached. He was at the 
farther end of the court, affixing a 
paper target to the frame in that 
shuttered window in the batter- 
board. “Sleep well?” And before 
she could reply, he said: “I slept 
like a log. Feel better than I’ve 
felt for months. This is a great 
place to rest, up here.” 

She caught his mood. “Then if 
you feel so well. I’ll shoot you a 
match; and if I beat you, you’ll 
have no alibis!” 

He chuckled, returning toward 
her. “You never saw the day, Nan¬ 
cy,” he retorted. His pistol, a long- 
barreled automatic of an European 
design, lay on the iron roller in a 
corner of the court. She picked it 
up, saw that it was loaded, and be¬ 
gan to shoot. 

Her shots, when she finished, 
were well grouped; and Doctor 
Greeding applauded her. 

He set up another target, filled 
the magazine. He fired somewhat 
more rapidly than she had; and 
when he finished, went to fetch the 
target. They examined it together, 
and she had to concede defeat. Of 
her shots, three were scattered out¬ 
side a six-inch circle; but his were 
all closely grouped. 

They stayed there, thus engaged, 
until the luncheon-bell rang; and he 
beat her consistently, so that his 
good humor grew. At lunch he was 
as amiable as possible; and she pre¬ 
tended chagrin at her defeat, and 
challenged him to tennis in the aft¬ 
ernoon. Her father accepted. 

They did not begin immediately 
after lunch; but they were on the 
court when in midafternoon the 
phone rang. The telephone itself 
was in a closet behind the dining¬ 
room, but there was a clanging bell 
on the side veranda which could 
be heard for half the length of the 
island; and Nancy cried: 

"I'll have to go answer. There’s 
probably no one in the house.” She 
went running down the path. 

But when she came back up the 
path, it was slowly, disappointment 

shadowing her eyes; she said: 
“That was Dan. He and Mary Ann 
can’t come till tomorrow. He’s got 
to work tonight They’ll be here 
on the noon train.” 

She was engrossed in her own 
disappointment, but not too much 
so to see his sudden frown. “Dan?” 
he echoed. “Is he coming?” 

“Yes,” she said. 

“I didn’t know that!” he pro¬ 

This, she recognized, was true; 
but she pretended a defensive sur¬ 
prise. “Why, we’ve talked about 
their both coming, right along,” she 

He said slowly; “I told you, when 
you spoke of it, that I thought it 
best — Furthermore, I’m sorry he 
is coming, just now. It’s most in¬ 

"Why?” she demanded. 

“Mr. Jerrell is coming tomor¬ 
row,” he explained. “He called up 
this morning to ask if he might, 
and I told him yes, by all means. 
I counted on you to entertain him. 
Mary Ann and I will be busy. 
You’d better tell Dan not to come, 
so that you’ll be free for Mr. Jer¬ 

She sought to make him smile. 
"But I’d much rather be with Dan,” 
she pointed out, with a grimace. 

He stared at her; and suddenly 
he demanded: “Nancy, how far 
have things gone between you and 
that young man?” 

“Dan and I are — going to be 
married. Father.” She realized 
suddenly that the issue postponed 
till this hour was joined now. If

Day, Nancy,” He Retorted. 

there were ever to be opposition 
on Doctor Greeding’s part, the time 
for It was come. And she added, 
to placate him: “Of course, not 
right away. But—soon, Father!” 

He met her announcement with a 
composure she found in some fash¬ 
ion alarming. "Sure of your 
ground?” he asked calmly. “Sure 
you want him?” 

“Sure as sure!” 

He said gravely: “Dan can’t take 
care of you. I’ll talk to Dan. 
He’ll see my point of view.” 

Something shook her; some dark 
fear beset her. “You sha’n’t!” she 
cried defiantly; and then, seeing 
his frown, already repentant: "Oh, 
Father, can’t you see that he and 
I have to be the ones to decide?” 

“Nonsense!” he retorted. “You’re 
too young to decide anything.” And 
then, urgently: "Nancy, don’t you 
realize that Mr. Jerrell wants to 
marry you?” 

“He doesn't!” she denied. “I 

“You know nothing, Nancy,” he 
retorted, in a deep exasperation. 
“You’re a witless child. I tell you, 
Mr. Jerrell—” He checked him¬ 
self, spoke more calmly: “Ira has 
spoken to me, Nancy,” he said 
urgently. “He came to me, like 
an honorable man, to ask what my 
attitude would be. Yes, he wants 
to marry you. And Nancy, he is 
my good friend. I am under many 
obligations to him.” 

She was afire now with a deep 
anger, and cried in furious scorn: 
“You mean you want to use me to 
repay him?” 

Her wrath warned him to cau¬ 
tion. He spoke in the tone of one 
who reasons with an unreasonable 
child. “I mean only that I think 
you ought to treat him with ordi¬ 
nary courtesy,” he said. “The cour¬ 
tesy to which a strong man’s de¬ 
votion entitles him. I only ask that 
you defer any decision until you 
have had time—" 

She was cold, trembling 
sorry,” she said. “I can't 

“Can't? You mean that 
won't!” he corrected stiffly. 

“I mean I won’t, then!" she as¬ 

There was silence. Then he said, 
half to himself, in a hushed tone: 
“It might be better for Dan, and 
for you, to be a little reasonable!” 

She cried, in a quick terror: 
“Father, you mustn't try to scare 
me! That isn’t fair!” 

He looked at her for a long mo¬ 
ment with eyes she had never seen 
before; then the flame in them died, 
and he managed a wary laugh. 

“I’ll talk to Dan,” he said. “He 
has some common sense.” 

“You sha’n’t say anything to 
Dan!” she exclaimed. "You can’t 
scare Dan. Or me!” 

And he reassured her with words. 
“I'm not trying to scare you, dear. 
Just to talk some reason into that 
stubborn little head of yours. You 
and Dan are in love, swept away, 
lost to all sensible considerations." 

She backed away from him, and 
her hands raised as though to push 
him from her. "No, no,” she cried 
in a whisper; and then, desperate, 
seized on a reckless expedient: 
“You can’t do anything to stop us. 
It’s too late!” she exclaimed. 

His eyes widened in shock and 
then in wrath. He was over the 
net in one bound. He gripped her 
arm like a vise, dragging her to¬ 
ward him. 

"What do you mean?” he de¬ 

“I mean we’re married!” she 
cried. “Let me go. Father! We’re 
already married. So it is too late, 
you see!” 

He stood for an instant motion¬ 
less, his eyes probing hers. Then 
he asked in curt incredulity: 

“Where? When?” 

Her wits, paralyzed by an un¬ 
reasoning fear of him, found no 
ready answer. She evaded the di¬ 
rect inquiry. 

“And even if we weren’t,” she 
cried, “Mr. Jerrell doesn’t want to 
marry me! He’s in love with Mary 

As though he had been struck 
in the face, he released her. He 
recoiled from her, and his coun¬ 
tenance was black and terrible. She 
pressed her hands to her eyes to 
shut out the sight of him. 

“Father, don't!" she pleaded. 
“Don’t look like that at me!” 

She heard him mutter hoarsely: 
“So!” Then terror whipped her so 
that she turned and ran. in stark 
panic, down the path and away. 

But Doctor Greeding stayed 
where he was; and after a moment 
the chaos of his thoughts settled 
in a simple, inevitable pattern. Jer¬ 
rell and Mary Annl Jerrell and 
Mary Ann! He remembered small 
incidents, forgotten words, each one 
trivial, yet in their sum enough to 
confirm the truth of what Nancy 
had said. Jerrell and Mary Ann! 

But if Nancy had been free, Jer¬ 
rell would never have turned to 
Mary Ann. And Nancy would have 
been free, but for Dan. 

Dan! On this rock his plans were 
shattered, then. 

Then he walked calmly toward 
the house. He went to his room 
and opened a drawer in the bureau, 
and took from its holster the pistol 

"Do you blame me. terribly?” 

She pressed his hand. “Poor 
Father,” she whispered. 

He bent to kiss her brow. “But 
of course," he said ruefully, “since 
she and Jerrell—" He left the 
sentence unfinished. “So I’ve only 
you, Nancy.” And: “Sleep sweet,” 
he bade her. "Good night.” 

“Good night. Father!” 

The door closed behind him, and 
darkness wrapped her close. But 
not terror now. His magic had 
worked its miracle. She was at 

She slept till full dawn, and woke 
refreshed; her father joined her 
for a swim and breakfast afterward. 
The interminable morning somehow 
sped. Dan and Mary Ann would 
arrive on the noon train, and Nancy 
insisted that Doctor Greeding come 
with her to meet them. It was a 
fifteen-minute run in the fast boat 
to the landing by the station. , . . 
Nancy kissed Mary Ann, kissed Dan 
only with her eyes; and then they 
went down to where the boat was 
moored, Dan and her father carry¬ 
ing the bags, stowing them in the 
after cockpit Her father took the 
wheel, Mary Ann beside him; and 
Nancy and Dan sat just behind. 
In a moment they were in the open 
lake; and Nancy leaned secretly to 
Dan, to kiss him. 

Her father said with a chuckle 
over his shoulder: “You two 
showed an admirable restraint, to 
wait so long." His tone was amused 
and kindly. 

Dan was startled, and then he 
laughed. “Nancy has told you about 
us, then, sir?” 

"Of course.” 

Nancy held tight to Dan’s arm; 
and the young man said: “I want to 
talk to you about Nancy, while I’m 

Doctor Greeding chuckled. “This 
brother of yours has a fine old- 
fashioned courtesy in him,” he told 


Nancy that night did not come 
down to dinner. She could not bear 
to face her father. That mask of 
anger which she had seen upon his 
countenance left her sick and shak¬ 
en Witn a fear she could not name. 
She stayed in her rooin, sent word 
that her head ached. 

At dusk from very weariness she 
slept, and dreamed and woke cold 
and terrified; and thereafter she 
lay wide-eyed in the darkness. After 
a long time she heard her father 
getting up and then he opened the 
door into her room. 

Entering, he said gently: “Awake, 
Nancy? Feel better now?” 

His tones were soft and reassur¬ 

“Yes, Father,” she murmured. 
He sat down on the edge of her 
bed and touched her hand. “I came 
to tell you I’m sorry, my dear,” he 
said, smiling, his tone humble. 
“Forgive me.” 

She whispered piteously: “You 
mustn’t ever scare me. Father.” 

He repeated: “I’m sorry. You’re 
all I’ve got now, Nancy!” And he 
urged, pleading in his own defense: 
“But since your mother died, my 

"I know,” she confessed. ”1 un¬ 
derstand.” There were sudden tears 
in her eyes; she loved him and 
pitied him. “I do understand. And 
— I didn’t mean to — defy you. 
Father. Only, Dan and I—” 

He asked quizzically: “Are you 
two youngsters really married?” 

She shook her head. “No. I just 
—said that because I was desperate. 

I was— fighting for everything I 
want. Father. We’re not, no.” She 
added quickly: “But we will be.” 

“I know." he assented. “And I 
know you would—do as I wish, if 
you could. But X know that love 
can be too strong for a girl, for a 
woman.” He added, watching her: 
“For a man, too.” 

“Yes,” she said gravely. 

He laughed, in an abashed fash¬ 
ion. “I’m in a confidential mood to¬ 
night, Nancy. Don’t—blame ire, too 
much; but you know, men — even 
men of my age have sometimes 
thoughts, dreams, hopes they can’t 
control.” And he asked slowly: “Do 
you understand what I'm—confes¬ 
sing, Nancy? What dreams I’m 
telling you?” 

She whispered: “Yes. 1 think 
I’ve guessed before.” 

‘What Is It?” Dan Asked. “Hear 

Mary Ann. "Not many young men 
trouble to consult the girl’s father, 

Mary Ann smiled happily. "Dan 
has been very well brought up,” 
she agreed. 

They were at lunch when the 
telephone rang, and Thomas took 
the call. “Mr. Jerrell, sir,” he re¬ 
ported. “He will be at the land¬ 
ing in half an hour.” 

"Thank you. Thomas,” Doctor 
Greeding assented. 

He was watching Mary Ann, saw 
that her eyes were brighter, her 
cheeks faintly tinted. She felt his 
scrutiny, and asked disarmingly: 
"Mr. Jerrell? Is he coming?” 

“I’m afraid you and I won’t get 
much work done over the week¬ 
end,” Doctor Greeding confessed. 
"Dan and Nancy will be—absorbed 
in each other, so we must keep 
Jerrell entertained.” 

“We’ll go meet him," Nancy vol¬ 
unteered. “Dan and I.” 

But her father shook his head. 
“Nonsense! Mary Ann and L will 
do that.” And when presently they 
rose from the table, he said: “Nan¬ 
cy, you and Dan perforate a few tar¬ 
gets. We’U join you after we fetch 
Jerrell.” He asked Dan: “Ever 
try pistol-shooting, Dan?” 

“Some, yes,” Dan confessed. “I 
used to belong to a club. I rather 
like it.” 

“I’ll take you on for^a round,” 
Doctor Greeding offered. He 
chuckled. "Jerrell tried it, when 
he was last here; but he's hopeless. 
We’ll give him a lesson.” He spoke 
to Mary Ann. “By the time we get 
to the landing, he’ll be there.” 

He led Mary Ann away toward 
the boathouse. Nancy looked at Dan 
with a grimace, amused, perplexed. 
“I suppose we have to humor him,” 
she confessed. 

Dan caught her close. "Say, when 
he’s been so decent, I’d spend the 
afternoon standing on my head if 
he asked me to.” 

She stood silent, frowning, intent, 
as though listening "What is it?” 
Dan asked. “Hear something?” 

Nancy shivered in his arms. “No, 
no. I felt—it’s funny, but I felt 
cold.” She freed herself, caught 
his hand. “Come, we’ll get the tar¬ 
gets and things,” she said. 

Jerrell was on the wharf when 
the boat pulled alongside, and he 
reached down to shake Doctor 
Greedipg’s hand, and across the 
Doctor to Mary Ann. Doctor Greed¬ 
ing saw their glances meet.

‘Garrison Finish” 

“'T'HAT was a garrison finish!” 

you exclaim when the home 
team, which has been trailing for 
most of the game, comes from be¬ 
hind to win in the last minute of 
play. And when you say that you 
are perpetuating the fame—not of 
a baseball or a football player, but 
of a jockey! 

Edward H. Garrison was his 
name and he started life as a black¬ 
smith’s helper in New Haven, Conn. 
Then he began hanging around the 
racetracks and occasionally was 
given the job of exercising one of 
the thoroughbreds. It wasn’t long 
until he was a full-fledged jockey, 
who made it a practice to hold his 
mounts in during the greater part 
of a race because he mistrusted 
the staying power of a “front run¬ 
ner.” Then he began to boot and 
whip as they came into the stretch 
where, as he said, “the money is.” 

In 1886 one of these “come-from- 
behind-to-win” drives carried an 
outsider, Dutch Roller, owned by 
James R. Keene, to victory in the 
Great Eastern handicap at Sheeps- 
head Bay, N. Y., and after that a 
“Garrison finish” became a by¬ 
word on the turf. But more famous 
than that was Garrison’s victory on 
Boundless in the $60,000 World Fair 
derby in Chicago in 1893. 

When the entries in this race went 
to the post. Garrison began to stalk 
On one pretext or another, such as 
fixing his straps and his saddle, he 
managed to delay the start of the 
race for an hour and 42 minutes! 
He spent most of this time on the 
ground, thus taking the weight off 
his horse, while the other horses 
were fidgeting and wearing them¬ 
selves out under the weight of their 

When at last they were sent away 
to the excited cheers of 100,000 
spectators. Boundless’ jockey 
trailed the field for almost the en¬ 
tire race. Then there was another 
“Garrison finish” and Boundless, a 
15 to 1 shot, came home the win¬ 
ner of $60,000—or rather $59,000 for 
the judges fined Garrison $1,000 for 
his part in the delay at the post. 

“Snapper” won, lost and partly 
regained a fortune in racing. He 
quit as a jockey in 1897 and later 
served as an official at numerous 
tracks in the South. His last days 
were spent in Florida where he 
died a few years ago at the age of 

John Smith T. 

£JIS name was John T. Smith. 

But that was too common. So, 
in order to make people remember 
his name he began signing it “John 
Smith T.” As such it has come 
down in history, albeit the figure of 
the man who bore it is a shadowy 
one. We know that he was famous 
in the early days of Missouri as a 
duelist and land speculator and that 
he caused considerable trouble for 
Moses Austin before that worthy 
went to the Southwest to play an 
important role in the history of the 
Republic of Texas. 

Historians are beginning to sus¬ 
pect that John Smith T. was deeply 
involved in the Burr conspiracy, as 
was another John Smith—a United 
States senator from Ohio who 
missed being expelled from the sen¬ 
ate by just one vote. But how prom¬ 
inent John Smith T. was in that mis¬ 
guided adventure is still unknown 
and he is remembered chiefly be¬ 
cause he was uniquely successful 
in escaping oblivion when “Fate 
tried to conceal him by naming him 

At least four others who at¬ 
tempted to thwart Fate thus are re¬ 
corded in the rolls of the United 
States army. J. Allen Smith of 
Pennsylvania changed his name to 
J. A. S. Izard when he entered the 
United States Military academy at 
West Point but when he was gradu¬ 
ated in 1825 he resumed his real 
name. One of his classmates was 
Joseph Brice Smith, who was 
graduated as Joseph S. Bryce, be¬ 
came a second lieutenant and re¬ 
signed from the army in 1832. At 
the outbreak of the Civil war he be¬ 
came a captain of volunteers and 
in 1865 was brevetted a major for 
gallantry during the war. In 1830 
a William Smith entered West Point 
as "William D. Fraser” ( but he was 
graduated under his right name. He 
rose to a captaincy and was brevet¬ 
ted a major in 1848 for “merito¬ 
rious service” during the Mexican 

The fourth Smith who changed his 
name rose the highest’ in military 
life. He was Morgan Lewis Smith, 
who for some unknown reason en¬ 
listed in the army in 1845 under 
the name of Martin L. Sanford and 
served as private, corporal and ser¬ 
geant during the next five years. 
The outbreak of the Civil war found 
him using his real name again. 
He became colonel of the Eighth 
Missouri infantry in 1861 and was 
made a brigadier-general of volun¬ 
teers in 1862, holding that rank until 
he resigned in 1865. 

No Haggling Over 
Such Trifling Amount 

It was market day. Prices had 
been high, and the man leaning 
over the fence round the sale ring 
was looking disconsolate. Sudden¬ 
ly a farmer rode up on an ancient 

“How much do you want for 
that bag o’ bones?” asked the by¬ 
stander, his interest awakening. 

“Fifty dollars.’ 

“I’ll give you five.” 

For a moment the farmer 
stared at the man in amazement. 

“Young man," he said, “I ain’t 
going to let a little matter of 
forty-five dollars stand between 
me and the sale of a horse. The 
animal’s yours.”

State Capitol News 

Let us not be overwhelmed with 
tlie many appeals that come to us 
at this time for aid to the less 
fortunate. Remember, that when it 
rains it pours; and we need not to 
remind you this has been proven 
during the,month of January, which 
fact has contributed largely to the 
needs of the distressed in some sec¬ 
tions of the country. 

We have the appeal for contribu¬ 
tions to the West Shelby County 
Welfare Fund. Already, no doubt, 
you have had information sufficient 
to convince you that a contribution 
to that cause is worthy. 

Second, is the appeal that comes 
through the President’s Birthday 
celebrations for aid to infantile pa¬ 
ralysis victims and crippled children. 
This is the fourth annual occasion oi 
the kind .we have had a part in, and 
those who are able to spare a dollar 
or a quarter certainly will not re¬ 
fuse to support President Roose¬ 
velt in his efforts to relieve present 
suffering and prevent further af¬ 

Third, comes the cry of thousands 
in the Ohio valley, who Have been 
swept from homes by the relentless 
and apparently increasing flopd wa¬ 
ters. The Red Cross is upon the 
scene, and is meeting the need. How 
long and how efficiently they can 
meet the needs depends upon the 
response of people of the country 
lo the emergency call for contribu¬ 
tions oi clothing, food, and other 
necessary supplies—and more mon¬ 

Hark as the picture seems, the 
floods will soon subside. The Red 
Cross will have rehabilitated the 
area insofar as its activities and 
abilities may supplement the undy¬ 
ing spirit of Americans in the 
stricken area. 

Then we shall stand ready for the 
call of the next calamity—and we 
shall not have, to wait long. There 
will be another disaster visited upon 
some people by the angry elements. 
It may be right here at home. Such 
tilings have happened, and we have 
had the Red Cross come to the res¬ 
cue of our suffering. 

Let us not be overwhelmed with 
the multiplicity of appeals, those 
of us who can do so must contribute 
of our means while we can, to the 
suffering at our doors, and to the 
stricken in distant places. 

We may be the next to send out 
the distress call.

An abundance of home grown 
ruit is a necessary part of every 
>ood farming program, and to have 
his supply of fruit requires good 
lealthy trees. Proper pruning and 
hen spraying to destroy disease 
md insects must be done at the 
ight time. 

Peach trees require heavy prun¬ 
ing each year to stimulate new 
growth and to maintain an open- 
top, low-spreading tree. 

Pears and apples should be prun¬ 
ed to keep limbs from rubbing or 
:rowding. * 

After the trees are pruned, a 
winter or dormant spray should be 
applied; this spray should be a con¬ 
centrated lime-sulphur or oil emul¬ 
sion spray. The directions given 
by the manufacturer of the spray 
used should be followed carefully. 

The dormant spray is for the pro¬ 
tection of the tree, while the sum¬ 
mer sprays are for the protection 
of the fruit against insects and dis¬ 

If I can be of help to you in 
pruning, spraying and fertilizing 
your orchard, call on me. 

Montgomery, Ala., — Measures 
calling lor prohibition repeal, a 3 
per cent sales tax, exemption of 
homesteads from State and ad va¬ 
lorem taxation, extension oi the So¬ 
cial Security Program, and a con¬ 
stitutional amendment prohibiting 
the diversion of gasoline' taxes for 
purposes other iiian road building, 
were included i: a total of 120 bills 
on the Senate and; House calendars 

Chief interests were focused on 
the Senate message to the House, 
amending the “repealer ’ by insert¬ 
ing the referendum clause. Over 
the week end opinion was sharply 
divided as to whether the House 
would strike out the referendum 
feature and send the measure back 
to the Senate for final passage in 
its original form or be snuffed out 
on the floor of the upper House. 

Even if the Senate should adopt 
the “repealer", shorn of the refer¬ 
endum feature, it is not unlikely 
that Governor Bibb Graves will ve¬ 
to it, in which event the bill would 
he as dead as Cock Rcibin. 

“Certainly the prohibitionists in 
Alabama have no grounds for chid¬ 
ing the Governor on the liquor 
question,” said Senator W ill O. 
Walton, of Chambers. “The inclu¬ 
sion in his formal call for consid¬ 
eration, of prohibition, which speci¬ 
fically demands a plesescite, was 
made only after a considerable num¬ 
ber of “drys” joined the “Wets" 
for a showdown on the State s lu¬ 
dicrous bone dry laws and the re¬ 
fusal of juries throughout the State 
to convict liquor law violators." 

The concensus of other solons 
among the early arrivals was that 
sensible “drys" came to the con¬ 
clusion that prohibition should be 
consigned to the legal junk yard 
aucl enact some sort of control sys¬ 
tem whereby the State might earn 
sufficient revenue to carry on the 
health and public welfare agencies, 
now sorely crippled for lack of 

A special order on the House cal¬ 
endar Tuesday was Senator Wood- 
all’s homestead exemption bill. 
Governor Graves believes that pas¬ 
sage of this measure will greatly 
encourage people to own their own 
homes and also lure new industries 
into the State, in which belief real 
estats operators heartily concur. 

The Chichester 2 per cent sales 
tax measure is another special or¬ 
der which may consume two legis¬ 
lative days. I his bill was drafted 
and introdyced by the Jefferson 
representative who has frequently 
been identified with the so-called 
"economy bloc , opposed to any ad¬ 
ditional tax measures—schools or 
no schools. He explained that his 
bill was offered as a substitute for 
the lyi per cent gross receipts levy 
which went into effect January 1. 
Strange as it may scent, many mem¬ 
bers of Jeff Beeland’s Consumer’s 
Anti Sales Tax Association are sec¬ 
retly working tooth and toe nail for 
the outright sales tax which they 
prefer to the gross receipts tax. 
Beeland’s last "march on the cap- 
itol” proved a fluke, and now that 
all protestants have been heard, the 
legislative decks are cleared for ac- 



Other important bills

By Deloucy of Colbert : A con¬ 
stitutional amendment (similar to 
the one defeated at the polls last 
November) permitting courts to 
spend sentences in cases where

By Senator Kelly of Conecuh : 
Requiring voters to \declare their 
political affiliations, the object of 
which is to bar Republicans from 
participating in Democratic primar¬ 

of 1950, the obligation had been 
pushed down to $16,000,000,000. 

Then depression set in and the 
rise started again. So swift was it 
that the debt was doubled in seven 
years and. on June 30, 1937, accord¬ 
ing to the President’s budget mes¬ 
sage, a record peak of $35,000,000 
will be reached. 

Big topic of debate during the 
spending years was whether the 
federal Government was justified 
in distributing financial largesee on 
a vast scale — and the reverberations 
from the uudecidable argument will 
oe heard down the years. But it 
is apparent that the time for mak¬ 
ing the controversy active is over 
—the debt is a fact that exists and 
must be faced. And the question 
now is. how rapidly can it be re¬ 

According to the President, it can 
and will he reduced — but not rapid¬ 
ly. lie estimates that the debt will 
be frozen to the 1937-38 level until 
the end of the fiscal year, at the 
$35,000,000,000 level. On June 30,1939 
he estimates that it will stand at 
$34,600,000,000 and thereafter go 
steadily down. 

The U. S. News points out, how¬ 
ever, that the government possesses 
certain assets — cash on hand, out¬ 
standing loans to businesses, -ic.— 
which could be deducted ifom the 
debt, and also that the Treasury 
does not count public buildings and 
similar works as assets. It says: 
"If they are included as assets, the 
debt obligations would be far more 
than offset . . . .” But most of these 
assets produce no income, and in¬ 
stead constitute a heavy expense, 
and the magnitude of the debt has 
made it necessary to broaden the 
tax base and increase levies all 
along the line in order to pay carry¬ 
ing charges and provide funds for 
retiring bonds when they come due. 





Mr. W. H. Trumbauer. director 
if the Alabama College Theatre, in- 
ites the attendance of the public, 
t the following engagements ar 
anged with Sigmund Spaeth, tunc 
letective, at Palmer Hall: 

Monday, February 1, at 8 p.m.; 
ilso tentative engagements on 
ruesday, February 2, at 12 noon 
md 8 p.m. 

These entertainments are provid- 
d for the college and community as 
lumbers on the Alabama College 
Joncert and Lecture Series. 

Alabama’s 300,000 automobile 
owners may be assured that the 
money they spend for gasoline taxes 
will be used solely for road and 
bridge building and retirement ot 
highway bonds under provisions oi 
a constitutional amendment pending 
in the Senate. 

The amendment forbids the State 
and the counties from -using any 
part of the State gasoline tax levy 
lor purpoess other than road ana 
bridge construction. It also applies 
to that portion of gas receipts which 
is divided equally among the 67 
counties, amounting to about $8,006 
a month. 

An interesting, change is now tak¬ 
ing place in the heavy construction 
outlook, according to figures gath¬ 
ered and tabulated by Engineering 

During prosperous days, the Fed¬ 
eral government was an insignifi¬ 
cant factor, so far as major build • 
ing was concerned. Where it spent 
only $50,000,000 for this purpose in 
1926. local governmental units spent 
over $1,000,000,000. and private in¬ 
dustry spent much more. 

Depression wrought a drastic 
change. The Federal Government 
adopted public works as a "pump 
priming measure." For example, 
last year it spent $320,000,000 di¬ 
rectly for public works—and pro¬ 
vided the money for a very large 
part of the $1,301,000,000 spent by 
the local governments. Works un¬ 
dertaken by all units of government 
amounted. last year, to 68 per cent 
of all the heavy engineering ac¬ 

Now the picture is changing once 
more. Private construction is in¬ 
creasing, government construction 
decreasing. It is estimated that the 
public construction will amount to 
about 50 per cent and perhaps less 
of the 1937 total of all heavy con¬ 

in allocating Federal construction 
funds, less will go for buildings 
than in late years, and more for 
roads and grade-crossing work. 

While his friends have been elat¬ 
ed recently over the fine start that 
has been made in Washington by 
our new Congressman, Pete Jarman, 
there is a comparable degree of in¬ 
terest also in the social recognition 
that has been given Mrs. Jarman 
in official Washington. 

There is observed in a recent is¬ 
sue of The Washington Post an ar¬ 
ticle on the society page under the 
heading, “Mrs. Roosevelt Gives 
Luncheon atThe White House.” We 
icprint the article from Th'c Post 
in this issue of The Times. 

Reading the Pqst account of the 
White House Luncheon of the First 
Lady of our land, you will note in¬ 
cluded in the guest list the name of 
Mrs. Pete Jarman. Upon reflection, 
doubtless these facts will stand out: 

It was Mrs. Roosevelt’s first lun¬ 
cheon of the season. Of the forty- 
four ladies present, ten were wives 
of ambassadors or foreign digni¬ 
taries ; six were wives of United 
States Senators, and ten were wiv¬ 
es of Congressmen. Of these ten, 
four were from ’Alabama, which is 
properly regarded as a compliment 
to our State delegation. Only two 
of the number, however, were wives 
of new Congressmen, Mrs. Jarman, 
of Alabama, and Mrs. Byrne, of 
New York. * 

According to precedent, it is con¬ 
sidered very unusual for the wife 
of a new Congressman/ to attend 
the First Lady’s first luncheon. And, 
further, it is quite significant that 
this honor should come to the wife 
of our new Congressman. It is a 
distinction established to the credit 
of Mrs. Jarman, proving her as 
quite capable of matching her place 
in the social register of Washing¬ 
ton with that of her 1 husband in his 
record of legislative accomplish¬ 

The Jarmans appear to be start¬ 
ing off splendidly in their efforts 
to put the Sixth Alabama district 
“on the map” in the nation’s Cap¬

Economic Highlights 

One of the burning topics of the 
day is the public debt—which is 
principally money owed by the Fed¬ 
eral government to bondholders, 
and which has promised to pay tn 
full on some future date, with in¬ 
terest running from 1 per cent to 
four per cent per annum during 
the term of indebtedness, depending 
on the type an date of issuance of 
the bonds. The debt is now at a 
record figure, due to the fact that 
during the depression the govern¬ 
ment has been spending around two 
dollars for each dollar received in 
revenue, and making up the deficit 
by issuing new securities. What 
everyone doesn’t know is that, un¬ 
til 1917, the debt was almost never 
beard of, and was never an issue 
of importance. 

Tbc Federal Government first 
went into debt at the end of the 
Revolutionary War. The states had 
incurred debts totalling about $75.- 
(XX),000 and when hostilities ceased 
the central government took over 
the obligations. Since then it has 
never been'out of debt—though for 
more than a century and a half thr 
amounts involved, in the light of 
existing conditions, were almost r:- 
dicuously ,small. 

Following the Revolution, the 
debt did not vary a great deal for 
about ninety years. Then came the 
Civil War which made demands up 
on the public, treasury that were 
unprecedented up to that lime. 
Even so, according to the U. S. 

News, the Civil War, though it last¬ 
ed for four years, increased the 
debt to only $2,755,000,000. 

Following the Civil War. the debt 
was gradually reduced as bond is¬ 
sues were redeemed. It dropped to 
the billion dollar level and stayed 
there, varying little, until 1017. 1 he 
World War war the most expensive 
undertaking in tltc nation's history 
and, in 1919, the debt passed the 
$26,000,000,000 mark—its pre-depres- 
uon high. 

The course of the debt after the 
World War was the same as after 
the”"Civil War—it was systematical¬ 
ly and steadily reduced. All during 
the 20's. Treasury income exceeded 
outgo, and the surplus was applied 
to the.debt. As a result, at the end

of 30 YEARS AGO ? 

Y ES? Then perhaps you remember Grandmother wishing that 
someone would invent a cook stove that was clean and fast, and 
economical—one that would cook appetizing meals even when she was 
away, so. she could be more regular in her attendance at church on 
Sunday, and at meetings of the Sewing Circle, or the Ladies’ Aid .Society during the week. 
And the cook stove she wished for would be so safe that she could visit a neighbor without 
worrying about you in the kitchen alone with the stove. 



TODAY it is their granddaughters who can enjoy even more than Grand¬ 
mother wished for—an ALL-ELECTRIC KITCHEN, with its health-pro¬ 
moting electric refrigerator; an electric range safer than any other cooking 
device— automatic, so that cooking goes on unattended (giving more time 
to do the things you like to do!)— economical, because with electricity so 
cheap in Alabama it is almost as cheap to cook electrically as any other way. 


So is it any wonder that the "Little Girls of 30 Years Ago” are today teaching their 
daughters, the Little Girls of Today, to want electric kitc/jens when they grow up? 


Electric Kitchen equipment — ranges, refrigerators, water heaters, 
dishwashers—can he bought at terms remarkably reasonable

Friday Night, January 29 



Seventy per cent of proceeds stays in 
the local community for aid to resident in¬ 
fantile paralysis cases and crippled children. 
Thirty per cent goes to Warm Springs Foun¬ 
dation for use in national fight against in¬ 
fantile paralysis. 

Everybody Invited 

As we think, we act. 

Thought guides in the field of peace. 

The world will have to have a big war pretty soon, if just to get 
its money’s worth out of the battleships it’s building. 


Six little boys met on a highway and began throwing rocks at 
each other. Each had his pockets full of stones. Each little boy 
'""•t. Everyone was soon bleeding. So they quit for a while. 

But the sixth little boy wouldn’t throw away his stones because 
the fifth one wouldn't. 

And the fifth little boy wouldn’t throw away his stones because 
the fourth one wouldn’t. 

The fourth little hoy wouldn’t throw away his stones because the 
third one wouldn’t. 

The third little boy wouldn’t throw away his stones because the 
second one wouldn’t. The second little boy wouldn’t throw away 
his stones because the first one wouldn’t and the first one wouldn’t 
throw away his stones because the sixth one wouldn't. 

So all kept stones in pocket. Wbeliever they met a fight generally 
occurred. The little boys had such names as France, Germany, Eng¬ 
land. America, Japan, and Italy.—Journal, Winston-Salem, North 


(Arthur Ponsonby, M. P.) 

Your country needs you 
—alive and not dead 1 

Your healthy beating heart 

—and not your weak and shattered nerves! 

Your full strength 

—not your crippled body 1 

Your active interest 

—not your shell-shocked mind 1 

Your living self 

—not your rotted corpse! 


(Grace Noll Crowell) 

Lord, we arc the Youth of every land today, 

Pleading for peace; 

We are the ones who will be sacrificed 
Unless wars cease ; 

We are the ones elected. Lord, to pay 
!Ai price too high, 

You gave us life, and it is not your will 
That we should die. 

Open the blind eyes of our leaders. Lord, 

In every land; 

Open their hearts and minds and make them wise 
To understand 

That war is sad, and horrible, and wrong. 

And useless quite; 

That we, the clean strong Youth of earth. 

Have the good right 

To life and love and happiness and peace. 

We would not be 

Killers of men—we want to walk the earth 
Clean handed, free 

From war with all its honors, lust and greed. 

Its dark despair. 

Lord, may there never be another war— 

This is our prayer. 

“It is recognized throughout the world that America is the key 
to World Peace. To educate this great nation on so complex an 
issue will require intensive organization and development. The prob¬ 
lem is for the rank and file of voting citizens to acquire knowledge 
of the subject and take an emphatic stand against war. The peace’ 
movement is at the point where it depends on the average man and 
woman and the effort of every individual may be made to count.”— 
Halt Cry The Dead, by Barber.

N OT only the sun, but the moon 
as well, will rise and set on 
these new styles created by Sew- 
Your-Own. This timely trio is one 
of the most wearable ever offered 
the members of The Sewing Cir¬ 
cle. Yet, and you’ll love this, 
there isn’t a, complication or a 
single trick detail to bother with 
in the whole program. 

Pattern 1981—Pajamas so com¬ 
fortable, restful and entirely satis¬ 
fying that the alarm clock will 
have to ring twice—no foolin’— 
that’s the boast and even the 
promise of this newest two piece 
outfit. It goes through your sew¬ 
ing machine like a dream, and 
really is one made up in satin or 
one of the vivid new prints. For 
lounging, the long sleeved version 
in velveteen or silk crepe is a 
knockout. It is designed in sizes 
14, 16, 18 and 20 (32 to 42 bust). 
Size 16 requires 5 yards of 39 
inch material, with short sleeves 
4% yards. 

Pattern 1207—If your day begins 
at the crack of dawn with a stand¬ 
ing invitation to prepare break¬ 
fast in nothing flat, or there¬ 
abouts, this is a house dress you 
can well appreciate. It’s on in a 
jiffy and is just the thing for a 
two - handed, expert breakfast 
maker. The lines are clean cut 
and slenderizing. It has a large 
pocket that’s helpful, and general 
prettiness that is conducive to 
one’s mental and physical well 
being. It is available in sizes 34, 
36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, and 50. 
Size 36 requires 4% yards of 
39 inch material, with long sleeves 
4% yards. 

Pattern 1978—This blithe little 
blouse will add spice to your 

wardrobe at this time. Not only 
is it the essence of smartness and 
the last word in style, but the first 
word in simplicity, which is impor¬ 
tant to you who sew at home. It 
is feminine as to collar, delicately 
slender of waist and highly orig¬ 
inal throughout. You may have 
it with short or long sleeves, as 
you prefer. It is designed in sizes 
12, 14, 16, 18, and 20 (30 to 38 
bust). Size 14 requires 2Va yards 
of 39 inch material, with short 
sleeves 1% yards.

Calotabs Help Nature 
To Throw Off a Cold 

Millions have found in Calotabs a 
most valuable aid in the treatment 
of colds. They take one or two tab¬ 
lets the first night and repeat the 
third or fourth night if needed. 

How do Calotabs help Nature 
throw off a cold? First, Calotabs 
are one of the most thorough and 
dependable of all intestinal eiimi- 
nants, thus cleansing the intestinal 
tract of the germ-laden mucus and 

toxines. Second, Calotabs are diu¬ 
retic to the kidneys, promoting the 
elimination of cold poisons from 
the blood. Thus Calotabs serve 
the double purpose of a purgative 
and diuretic, both of which are 
needed in the treatment of colds. 

Calotabs are quite economical; 
only twenty-five cents for the fam¬ 
ily package, ten cents for the trial 
package. (Adv.) 

The Curse of Progress 

Similar Things 

The guide was showing a party of 
American tourists over a noted 
church in London. When they 
reached the belfry the guide said: 

“This ’ere bell is a bit unusual, it 
is. We only ring it on the occasion 
of a visit from the Lord Bishop, or 
when we 'ave a fire, a flood, or some 
such calamity.” 





Proves They’re Balmy 

T nmates of the local insane asy¬ 
lum attended a phonograph con¬ 
cert recently, during which all types 
of recorded melody were given a 
hearing. When the program was 
concluded they were asked to vote 
on what they liked best. 

Unanimous choice was for Ameri¬ 
can jazz.—Variety. 

One Way 

Mrs. Multikids — I never punish 
my children; It’s decidedly against 
my principles. 

Mrs. More kids — I wonder how 
you dan expect to manage them.

band when they misbehave and he

O NE of the trade maga¬ 
zines of the motion pic¬ 
ture industry startled the 
workers in the business re¬ 
cently by publishing a report 
on the popularity of the 
screen stars. For months and 
months, people had been told 
that Robert Taylor had 
climbed to the very top: that 
he got more fan mail than 
Clark Gable did, that his 
name above a theater was 
magic, because it drew so 
many paying customers 
that, in short, Mr. Taylor was 

But — according to this report, 
Clark Gable is the screen's most 
popular actor! 

Last year Shirley Temple held 
that position. This year she is sec¬ 
ond. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rog¬ 
ers as a team come third, Robert 
Taylor fourth, and William Powell 

In case you’re interested, the oth¬ 
er leading stars are listed in this 
order; Myrna Loy, Claudette Col¬ 
bert, Norma Shearer, Gary Cooper, 
Frederic March, Jeanette MacDon¬ 
ald and Nelson Eddy as a team, 
Lionel Barrymore. 

it is nice to report that James 
Cagney’s new picture, “Great Guy,’ 
is one of his best. 

It had to be. He 
made it for Grand 
National you know, 
a new organization, 
and if it hadn’t 
turned out well we 
might have had no 
more Cagney on the 
screen for a while, 
at least. After all 
his troubles with 
studios it is pleasant 
to know that he is 
once more on t h e 
big time and that 
his comeback is really a triumph. 



Have you listened to that new 
radio program, “Do You Want to 
Be an Actor?” If you haven’t, do! 
It’s very entertaining. People who 
are in the audience are given roles 
in scenes that are done before the 
microphone, and after each per¬ 
formance the best woman perform¬ 
er and the best man are given 
movie tests by Warner Brothers. 
It’s quite possible that some of our 
future stars will be developed in 
this way. 


If the radio programs given by 
“Myrt and Marge” for Vo long 
were among your favorites, you’ll 
be glad to know that a new series 
done by that popular couple has 
started. It’s a family affair, for 
“Myrt’s” son is now on the pro¬ 
gram, and “Marge” is her daugh¬ 
ter. The son, George Damerel, used 
to go to the University of Southern 
California, but he left college to 
tour with his mother and sister 
when they went on the stage. Looks 
as if “Myrt” had built up a pretty 
good business for the family by 
writing those sketches, doesn't it? 

Grace Moore has had to abandon 
her career on the concert stage 
and on the air, temporarily, in 
order to take a much needed rest. 
She has been working hard in pic¬ 
tures— in fact, she has turned into 
a real trouper, and the tempera¬ 
ment that used to cause so much 
trouble is well under control. 


In "Stowaway” you’ll see Shirley 
Temple doing imitations of Eddie 
Cantor and A1 Jolson and doing 
them well. The funny thing about 
it is that the child star never has 
seen either of them; just worked 
the imitations up from what she 
was told about the two gentlemen’s 


Hollywood is still shocked over 
the suicide of Ross Alexander, al¬ 
though his friends 
knew that he had 
never ceased t o 
grieve over the 
death by suicide of 
his first wife, Aleta 
Freile, a little more 
than a year befdre. 
It was said that she 
killed herself be¬ 
cause, coming t o 
Hollywood from the 
New York stage, she 
Ross could not soem to 

Alexander get ahead in pic¬ 

tures. Young Alex¬ 
ander was doing very well with his 
career, and his second wife, Anne 
Nagel, is one of the screen’s pret¬ 
tiest young actresses. 


ODDS AND ENDS . . . Remember 
"The Shiek,” with Valentino? Nino 
Martini will appear in a picture based 
on a similar story . . . Jean Harlow 
and Robert Taylor will appear together 
in “The Man in Possession” ... It 
isn’t supposed to be known that Joan 
Fontaine is Olivia de Haviland’s sister, 
but everybody knows it—and the fact 
was announced here in “Star Dust ” 
months ago, when she signed with 
Jesse Laslcy . . . Once again “Madame 
X” is to be screened, this time with 
Gladys George in the stellar role.

New Stiff Silks That ‘Stand Alone 


■\X7TTH the midwinter social sea- 

’ ' son upon us and festivities at 
southern resorts going at high tem¬ 
po, smart women everywhere are 
preoccupied with new evening 
gowns to add glamour to time, place 
and the occasion. Greater formal¬ 
ity than in years is the rule, and 
women are playing up to this edict 
by wearing gowns of rare beauty 
and richness. 

One may belong to either of two 
schools of fashion—that which fa¬ 
vors heavy stiff heirloomlikc silks 
with a regal air or the type which 
favors diaphanous sheer silks that 
float about one enchantingly as one 
dances or promenades in the great 
concourse of fashion. 

Stiff silk satins such as slipper 
satin or duchess satin are lovely 
choices for dramatic gowns. The 
“delicious” colors of these glorified 
satins are simply entrancing—make 
you think of moonlit rays that go 
glimmering over rippling waves, or 
icy blues that crown snow-capped 
mountains or the lovely tints of the 
rainbow as it enhances summer 
skies. „ 

To be style-correct these stately 
satins should be fashioned along 
graceful lines with quaint artfully 
gored skirts that sweep into wid¬ 
ened hemlines. See the model to 
the left in the illustration. It is a 
frock of Edwardian period influence 
done in ice-blue satin with the new 
shirred bosom Styling. The puffed 
sleeves and princess lines achieve 
a charming youthful silhouette. The 
diamond sunburst worn suggests an 

heirloom that accords harmoniously 
with the type of silk used for the 
gown—a silk so grand and stiff it, 
as was the boast in grandma’s time, 
would “stand alone.” 

Some of the newest silk satins 
are studded with gold or silver se¬ 
quins or rhinestones. To the right 
in the picture stands a modern 
Juliet gowned in gardenia white 
satin, all - over starred with gold 
paillettes with halter neck of match¬ 
ing pailletted banding. Accessory 
highspots include a Juliet cap and 
a handbag done in gold paillettes, 
together with an exquisite white er 
mine coat. 

Warp printed silk taffetas have 
new looking patterns such as col¬ 
orful bow-knots in vivid hues on 
white or green. Centered in the 
group a modern Jenny Lind greets 
us in a rustling silk taffeta frock 
warp-printed with red bow-knots. 
With it this lovely lady wears pale 
pink kid gloves embroidered in gold 
and pearls. The new and fashion¬ 
able gloves featured this season are 
veritable works of art. There are 
pearls at the throat of this fair 
lady and she wears a swank pearl 

Other charming versions of the 
princess dinner and dance gown are 
done in stiff Lyons velvets with 
puffed sleeves and buttons all the 
way down the front. Rich silk da¬ 
masks are also fashioned in prin¬ 
cess lines made square-necked, in 
puff-sleeve styles which look like 
Edwardian ladies come back to life.

For high-style this midwinter sea¬ 
son let your hat be either fur- 
trimmed or feather-trimmed. The 
model at the top is a stunning fez 
turban of black felt and Persian 
lamb designed to complement a fur- 
trimmed cloth costume or a fur 
coat or cape. Smart vogue calls for 
fur trimmed millinery. With the cor¬ 
onation in sight ostrich feathers are 
enjoying increasing popularity. A 
lovely British film star wears the 
delightful hat shown in the picture. 
It is an exquisite black felt with 
twin ostrich feather plumes in two 
shades of rose. Another cunning 
new style for young girls that takes 
on an ostrich trim is the little felt 
shape that is somewhat a Juliet 
type, being a shallow round skull 
cap. This is worn far back on the 
head with two wee ostrich tips 
posed perkily at the fmnL 


For daytime sheer black woolens 
are smartly in fashion, and for eve¬ 
ning the vogue for black nets and 
chiffons is everywhere apparent. 
Just now fringe trimming is im¬ 
portant on the afternoon black 
sheer. The narrow fringe, placed 
row and row, forms cunning short 
cap-like sleeves with accents of 
fringe elsewhere on the bodice or at 
sash ends, or that which is tre¬ 
mendously chic—outlining the skirt 

In the early showings the new 
daytime black sheers are feminized 
with the daintiest of white lingerie 
details in form or frilly jabots, and 
novel cuffs and becoming collars 
and bib effects. 

The party-frock nets in black 
are made up in full-skirted styles 
with just yards and yards floating 

Mustard Yellow and Beige 
Favored Colors for Spring 

Look for these colors in the new 
spring fashions. In fact the vogue 
is on at this very moment for thesi 
flattering and very new-looking col¬ 

Best dressed women are favoring 
tweeds in beige and gowns of light¬ 
weight woolens in beige or golden 
hues are the "last word” for mid¬ 
season, worn under the not-yet dis¬ 
carded coats, in the daytime. 

For evening simply styled frocks 
of “old gold” satin are very pleas¬ 
ing. Some of the newer brocades 
are also in this color. 

Peasant Jewelry 
Carved in brilliant peasant reds, 
greens, yellows, and blues, minute 
Tyrolean figures are set in a red 
and white catalin frame a fourth of 
an inch thick. The pins and clips are 
one-and-a-half-inches square. 

Alphabet on Blouses 
Letters of the alphabet are spilled 
all over the fine cashmere blouses 
that are worn with winter street 
suits. The letters are usually in 
bright colors over a dull back¬

Samples of Ocean 
Bottom Obtained 
by a New Device 

of ocean bottom gouged out 
of ten feet of solid mud or 
silt by a new type of appa¬ 
ratus have been undergoing 
analysis at the Carnegie In¬ 
stitution of Washington. They 
are expected to tell new sto¬ 
ries of the geological and bi¬ 
ological history of the depths, 
hitherto hidden because no 
previously existing form of 
apparatus could do more 
than scoop up a superficial 
handful of material from the 
ocean floor. 

The device, called a core sam¬ 
pler, has been developed in the lab¬ 
oratories of the Carnegie institution 
by Dr. Charles A. Piggot of the geo¬ 
physical laboratory. It consists of a 
short, thick-walled cylinder with a 
plunger that can be driven forward 
by a charge of cannon powder. At¬ 
tached is a ten-foot tube of tem¬ 
pered steel, which is called the bit. 
When this sampler comes into con¬ 
tact with the bottom, the powder is 
exploded and the bit is driven into 
the ocean floor. 

Sample Comes up in Tube. 

The bit is lined with a thin brass 
tube, which is removable. The 
ocean bottom sample remains in 
this, to be corked up and filed away 
for study in the laboratories on 
shore. A new lining is shoved into 
the bit, the powder chamber in the 
gun reloaded, and the sampler is 
ready to take another bite. 

The first real deep-water samples 
were taken through the co-opera¬ 
tion of one of the great commer¬ 
cial cable companies, which had to 
send out a powerful repair ship, the 
Lord Kelvin, to mend a break in 
a trans-Atlantic cable. 

Cystine’s Presence 
Is Necessary for 
Growth of Cancer 

tissue, contrary to generally 
held opinion, requires the 
same sort of protein nourish¬ 
ment for its growth as nor¬ 
mal tissue does. Experi¬ 
ments showing this are re¬ 
ported by Drs. Carl Voegtlin, 
J. M. Johnson and J. W. 
Thompson, of the United 
States public health service 1 
The results of the studies, in 
which the growth of cancers in mice 
were checked by certain types of 
diet, cannot be applied in the treat¬ 
ment of cancer in man, Dr. Voegt¬ 
lin emphasized. 

New fundamental knowledge of 
the chemistry of cancer growth, 
however, has been gained. 

Needs Cystine to Grow, 

The growth of breast cancer in 
mice can be checked. Dr. Voegtlin 
and associates found, by feeding the 
animals a diet deficient, though not 
entirely lacking, in cystine. This 
chemical is an amino acid, one of 
the essential building stones of all 
tissue proteins. Cystine is also part 
of another chemical, glutathione, 
which is widely distributed in body 

After the cancer growth in the 
mice had been checked for about a 
month by the diet deficient in cys¬ 
tine, repeated injection of glutathi¬ 
one caused a marked stimulation of 
the cancer growth. This shows that 
glutathione is necessary for the 
rapid growth of cancer tissue just 
as it is apparently necessary for 
growth of normal tissue. 

Old Lady of Ice Age 
Found in California 

LOS ANGELES.—An Old Lady of 
the Ice Age is America’s newest 
claimant for the title of oldest in¬ 

Unearthed near here by federal 
WPA workmen, the skull and other 
bones of the ancient individual have 
been identified by anthropologists 
as belonging to "a female well ad¬ 
vanced in years.” 

Dr. A. O. Bowden and Ivan Lo¬ 
patin, anthropologists of the Uni¬ 
versity of Southern California, have 
reported the verdict to the journal 

The skull when unearthed early in 
1936 attracted quick scientific no¬ 
tice because, in the same geologic 
stratum of earth, bones of a mam¬ 
moth were discovered. Dr. Bowden 
concludes that the 13-foot blanket of 
earth covering the ancient woman 
and the elephant had not been dis¬ 
turbed, and that the old woman 
must have seen with her own eyes 
the strange big animals such as 
mammoths and saber-toothed tigers 
in the closing days of America’s 
Ice Age.

A Mental Inventory— 

Wishes Are but Wasted Thoughts 
Unless We Work to Attain Fruition 

TT is well in these early weeks of 
A the New, Year for us to take a 
sort of mental inventory of our¬ 
selves, and see if we are foster¬ 
ing any of the good things which 
we openly spoke of, or silently 
wished would materialize during 
1937. Have these things already 
gone into the dump heap of futili¬ 
ty? Have they been scrapped be¬ 
cause of no effort on our part to 
further their becoming realities? 
Are we aware of this scrapping? 
Or do we still vaguely suspect 
they will materialize or be fulfilled 
just becuse we think of them with 

Action Essential. 

Most of us remember the Ma- 
cawberism “Name a wish and 
gratify it.’ There have to be things 
set in motion before a wish can 
come to fruition. Unless we actu¬ 
ally want a thing enough to try to 
get it, we cannot want it very 
much. Our New Year wishes if 
they are to be fulfilled should be 
more than thought-seeds by now. 
They should have been planted 
and tended and perhaps have be¬ 
gun to show tiny sprouts. 


As wishes vary according to de¬ 
sires of individuals and avenues 
of opportunity for them to materi¬ 
alize differ, it is difficult to make 

helpful suggestions except in very 
obvious instances. 

Not every fervid wish can be 
literally acted upon. But even if 
not, it can be nurtured. Perhaps 
in the quiet of one’s own room, 
one can prepare oneself for calm¬ 
er and stronger progress, making 
one ready to work and see things 
through to a fine and a happy 
finish. Whatever the wish, it is 
but wasted breath or thought un¬ 
less one makes some attempt to 
attain its fulfillment.

Dance Done In 
‘Dorn To Dance’ 

"Born To Dance”, which comes to 
the Strand Theatre Thursday and 
Friday, January 28 and 29, is hailed 
as the season's most lavish pot¬

Miss Powell, whose versatility 
and appealing personality won her 
stardom in a single picture, "Broad¬ 
way Melody of 1906,” introduces 
fourteen varities of dance steps, in 
one number she does a medley oi 
six different types of dancing in as 
many minutes. She even leads a 
75-piece band with taps and makes 
her twinkling toes compete with 
the drummer's most expert rolls and 

In addition one dance group of 
110 men does a fast tempo routine 
which embraces the shuffle, truckin' 
snakehips, waltz, waltz clog, the 
strut, fast aud slow buck and wing, 
military tap, the drag, fox trot with 
imiginary partners, and an exceed¬ 
ingly fast straight tap. More than 
three weeks of intensive rehearsal 
were required for this number dur¬ 
ing part of which all the dancers 
play musical instruments and inter¬ 
sperse their playing with singing.

B v Donald Vaughan 

The United States Forest Ser¬ 
vice has just initiated the job ol 
planting nearly one million pine 
tree seedlings oil barren cut-over 
lands of the Conecuh National For¬ 
est in Covington County, Alabama, 
according to Frank W. Rasor, For 
est Supervisor at Alontgomery. This 
work is to be the largest scale tree 
planting job undertaking on the 
National Forests of Alabama. This 
number of seedlings will cover an 
area of about two thousand acres of 
denude! forest land which is nuv. 
almost devoid of forest growth, or 
supports only sparse clumps of 
scrub oaks which lias been the only 
survivor on cutover lands where 
repeated fires have killed the young 
natural seedlings of slash, longleaf 
and loblolly pines. 

The actual planting is to be done 
by CCC cnrollees located at Camp 
Ala. F-S, and it is expected that the 
job will be completed by Alarch 1. 
Intensive training in proper pianl- 
;ing methods has been given to 
crew leaders, foremen who will han¬ 
dle the men, and to the individual 
CCC crew , members. This should 
result in an efficient and well exe¬ 
cuted job of tree planting. 

Seedlings for the plantation, 
grown by the United States Forest 
Service, are being secured from the 
Ashe Nursery at Brooklyn,Alississ- 
ippi. They are of slash and long- 
leaf pine, both of wjiich are na¬ 
tive to this section. These species 
make rapid growth and will be 
valuable for both naval stores and 
lumber production. The trees will 
be planted in rows spaced eight feet 
apart, with a spacing of six feet 
between trees in the rows. At the 
end of fifteen or twenty years of 
growth thinnings will be necessary 
in this plantation. Removal of 
such trees as are interfering witli 
final crop trees, for pulpwood, posts 
and poles will provide work for lo¬ 
cal residents to whom this material 
will be sold. 

Protection of the seedlings for the 
first five to seven years against 
hogs, sheep, and cattle will be tak¬ 
en care of by a fence surrounding 
the entire plantation. Fire lines will 
be built around, and at intervals, 
through the plantation, to facilitate 
protection from fire. 

The entire job of planting, fenc¬ 
ing and fire line construction will 
be under the supervision ,of Forest 
Ranger, L. P. Schaap. whose head¬ 
quarters are at Andalusia, Alabama. 

This is the start of a planting pro¬ 
gram on the Conecuh National 
Forest which the United States Na 
tional Forest hopes to continue un¬ 
til all Government-owned lands in 
that Unit which are now devoid of 
desirable tree growth, are stocked I 
with trees which will protect the j 
land from erosion, aid in conserving j 
moisture, and produce revenue from ( 
future thinnings, turpentine opera¬ 
tions,. and harvesting of mature

Fullback. Jack Harrison, Alter¬ 
nate Captain of the 1936 squad, is 
our choice for this week’s article, 
lack possesses the fine quality of 
leadership that is necessary to fill the 
post of captain. He was liked by 
all the hoys, and his fine attitude 
helped to produce a good spirit 
among his’ mates. 

Jack, known to the boys as “Ab¬ 
ner”. started his football career in 
his Sr. 11 year by playing, first 
guard and then center. He stayed 
at these positions only a short time, 
when he was found to be a better 
fullback. He played his outstand¬ 
ing game at Columbiana, his last 
game. Here he made two touch¬ 
downs. After bucking tile line on 
both plays, lie twisted and dodged 
his way through the Columbiana sec¬ 
ondary to make the tallies. Jack 
was the iiardest playing man on the 
team. Tommy Thurmon, a former 
graduate of AI. H. S., named Jack 
as the shiftiest man on the squad. 

Jack was a "hard-hitting, low-driv¬ 
ing shifty back, and it was the two 
and three yards that were needed 
in a pinch that he delivered. But 
besides being a good ball carrier, 
Jack was also a good blocker. His 
blocking was very important as lie 
usually led the interference,. and 
did his job well. 

Jack is a two letter man, and Alt. 
Captain in his last year. He lives 
near Dogwood, and is one of the 
many boys who have to walk after 

Jack did a good job for his Alma 
Mater, and we wish him all the suc¬ 
cess and happiness that life can

Home Demonstration Agent 

The Helena 4-H Club meeting 
was held on Monday, January 18th, 
at the school building, with 52 pres¬ 
ent. The demonstration was given 
with the assistance of the club lead¬ 
er, who gave the! questions and an¬ 
swers on the demonstration in dia¬ 
logue form. We are always glad to 
have with us the local leader, Aliss 
Elizabeth Alay, a member of the 
Helena faculty. 

The Wilsonville 4-H Club met at 
the Wilsonville school on Wednes¬ 
day, January 20th with 22 present. 
A very nice program was rendered 
including a playlet entitled “Trouble 
Between Two Sisters.” Those tak¬ 
ing part on the program were: 
Alaudine Helms, Elmira Ingram, 
and Edna Chappel. A poem was 
recited by Elmira Ingram and Adell 
Vaughan. After the program the 
Home Agent gave a demonstration 
on “Beds and Bedding” and also 
the correct make of the bed. After 
a short recreational period, which 

was greatly enjoyed, the club ad¬ 
journed by repeating the club 
pledge* which is, “I pledge my head 
to clearer thinking, my heart for 
greater loyalty, my hands for larger 
service and my health for better 
living to my club, my comipunity 
and my home.”* 

Ttie Camp Branch Club held its 
meeting on January 19th, with 34 
members present. A very nice pro¬ 
gram was prepared by the program 
chairman, Frances Nash. The meet¬ 
ing was presided over by Fioycc 
Meek, President, and Louene Car¬ 
den, Secretary. Each member re¬ 
sponded to roll call by telling some¬ 
thing they had done or planned to 
do to make their bedroom more at¬ 

I wish to take this opportunity 
to thank all local leaders and school 
principals for their cooperation in 
putting over the 4-H Club program 
and may this year be the most suc¬ 
cessful ever for 4-H Club work in 
Shelby County. 

Bing Crosby, Madge Evans, Edith 
Fellows in “Pennies From Heaven” 

Airs. R. A. Burge, of Grove Hill, 
is spending some time with her 
daughter, Mrs. J. P. Kelly. 

Aliss Stella Mae Tommie, of Bes¬ 
semer, is visiting friends here for 
several days. 

There’s happiness ahead at the 
Strand Theatre, where Bing Cros¬ 
by’s latest picture, Columbia's “Pen¬ 
nies From Heaven,” is due on Sun¬ 
day and Monday. A cast that in¬ 
cludes Aladge Evans, Edith Fellows, 
Donald Meek and Louis Armstrong, 
famed king of swing, works along 
with Bing in the film. 

Crosby's latest picture was “Rhy¬ 
thm on The Range,” in which he 
scored a hit. Aladge Evans was last 
seen in "Piccadilly Jim,” and litte 
Edith Fellows, thirteen-year-old 
starlet, who will he remembered for 
her performances in “She Alarried 
Her Boss”, and “And So They Were 
Married”, and other films. Arm¬

The story concerns a vagabond 
troubadour who falls in love with 
a little girl and her improvident 
grandfather and proceeds to take 
them under his somewhat patched- 
up wing. The child is about to be 
sent to an orphanage and the eld¬ 
erly man to an Old People's Home, 
when the troubadour hits upon a 
plan to make enough money for all 
three of them to live on. 

The county welfare worker who 

is responsible for the child, happens 
to be just the type of a girl the 
troubadour can love, and he finds 
himself doing it thoroughly. How¬ 
ever, they are on opposite sides of 
the fence, hence complications. 
Things manage to work out for 
the best toward the end of the pic¬

best songs of his career in “Pennies

At the same time Commissioner 
Quinn revealed that Stephen Hare, 
recognized as one of the best gam:: 
breeders in the United States has 
been employed as superintendent ot 
of the farm. 

Mr. Hare, whose home is in Vir¬ 
ginia, already has taken over his 
new duties and is now engaged in 
installing equipment and making 
such repairs as are deemed neces¬ 

The 90-acre plot is near Pratt¬ 
ville and is just west of the Birm¬ 
ingham Highway. It is considered 
an ideal location for a game farm, 
has a nice dwelling on it, a beauti¬ 
ful lake in the southeast corner of 
the property and cover suitable for 
raising quail. 

The new superintendent joins the 
State Conservation Department 
with the highest' recommendations 
of Air. W. B. Coleman, of Rich¬ 
mond, Virginia, probably the 
world's foremost game breeder, and 
under whom Air. Hare received his 
training. Before coming to this 
state. Air. Hare also served as sup¬ 
erintendent of the Illinois Game 

Acquisition of the farm and the 
employment of Air. Hare marks the 
Department’s first attempt to raise 
quail for propogation purposes. If 
successful in this venture, it hooes 
fo expand the project to include 
other game species.

Alontgomery, Ala.—Persons and 
firms in need of help today were 
urged by A. P. Alorgan, Jr., acting 
state administrator, to make full 
use of the Works Progress Admin¬ 
istration reservoir for the unem¬ 
ployed, which includes labor of va¬ 
rious skills. 

While’ only -3 few farm families 
and relatively few highly skilled 
persons remain gn the rolls, a con¬ 
siderable quantity of common labor 
and employes of the “white collar” 
group are readily available, he said. 

The method of obtaining labor 
from,the Works Progress Adminis¬ 
tration is through use of the fa¬ 
cilities of the State and National 
Reemployment Offices, where not 
only relief labor, but unemployed 
persons who have never been bn 
relief, are registered and awaiting 
a call to work. The Reemploy¬ 
ment offices are units of the U. S. 
Department of Labor. 

Any qualified employee requisi¬ 
tioned through the .Reemployment 
office who does not accept the job 
offered him will be immediately dis¬ 
charged from the WPA if the wag¬ 
es offered him are in line with those 
paid in that county for the type of 
work. Air. Morgan said. 

The Reemployment Services have 
representatives in almost all of the 
counties and a complete record of 
each unemployed /person is avail¬ 
able for the prospective employer. 
Assignment of the unemployed is a 
responsibility of the Reemployment

Dr. Carmichael 
Probable Head 
Of Vanderbilt 

Former Alabamian In Line To 
Succeed Kirkland As 

Nashville, Tenn.—Dr. James 
Hampton Kirkland, 51 of whose 77 
years have been spent in connec¬ 
tion with Vanderbilt University 
will step down as chancellor next 

The venerable educator who be¬ 
came administrative head of Van¬ 
derbilt at the age of 34, resigned 
yesterday to the board of trust, ef¬ 
fective at the end of the current 
school year. 

The board of trust, and other 
school officials declined to discuss 
bis probable successor. 

Dr. Oliver C. Carmichael, dean of 
the senior college and graduate 
school, however, was mentoned 
most prominently as the next chan¬ 

The board elected Dr. Carmichael 
vice chancellor last June, a post 
that has revived after a lapse of 
20 years. 

Quiet in dress and speech, Chan¬ 
cellor Kirkland is a profound schol¬ 
ar and shrewd administrator. The 
university's assets under his regime 
leaped from about $2,000,000 to 
more than $20,000,000. 

He took his doctor of philosophy 
degree at the University of Leip¬ 
zig, Germany, in 1885. The next year 
lie returned and became professor 
of Latin at Vanderbilt. Seven years 
later he was chosen chancellor. 

Son of a Methodist minister, Dr. 
Kirkland was born at Spartanburg, 
S. C., in 1859. He was graduated 
from Wofford College in that state 
at the age of 18, later serving there 
as instructor of Greek and German. 

High School Student 
Aids Flood Sufferers 

Last Sunday afternoon while oth¬ 
er boys were playing games or were 
engaged in interests all their own, 
Winston Hogan, age 15, of Wilton, 
a Boy Scout, and who is a 
student at the Montevallo High 
School, was sitting close by the 
radio listening to the heart-stirring 
calls for aid to the flood sufferers. 
It was at that time that he con¬ 
ceived the idea to go out and do 
his bit. He went from house to 
house asking for contributions. He 
received the sum of $7.65 which he 
gave to the local Red Cross Chap¬ 
ter. With the results of this boy’s 
efforts hungry mouths will be fed 
and shivering bodies clothed. 

Winston Hogan has realized that 
the great responsibility of caring 
for victims of disasters rests upon 
society as a whole, that the restora¬ 
tion of these people to their homes 
is not a regional project but one of 
nation-wide interest and participa¬

Views of Some New Buildings in Montevallo 

. Three new buildings illustrating the expanded 
construction activity at Montevallo are shown in 
the above group. Both public and private con¬ 
struction has shown an increase in the last few 
months and as a result Montevallo has several 
handsome new structures. The top photo is a view 

of tKS'^fWW filter plant built by AflftarJa College 
to furnish a supply of pure water for the school. 
The view in the center shows the new postoffice, 
which has recently been completed, while the low¬ 
er picture shows the residence of Mr. and Mrs. E. 
E. Craig, one of the several new homes that have 
been built recently. 

Launched by the recent construc¬ 
tion of a handsome grade separa¬ 
tion viaduct, providing a new en¬ 
trance into the city, building ope¬ 
rations have shown a marked in¬ 
crease here in the last year. Both 
private and public buildings have 
been included in the expanded ac¬ 

Coijstruction of the yiaduct, one 
of the first in the Federal Govern¬ 
ment’s grade separation program, 
gives Montevallo a more direct en¬ 
trance to town and provides visitors 
with an inspired vista as they drive 
over the curving structure. Span¬ 
ning the railroad tracks and a creek, 
the viaduct was built as a WPA 
project and was completed last sum¬ 
mer. In addition the highway from 
Calera was paved for the entire six 
miles, making this home of Ala¬ 
bama College, State College for

Women, more accessible from other 
parts of the State. 

The new entrance to town has 
stimulated home building in the area 
and several residences recently have 
been completed or are under con¬ 
struction. One of the most inter¬ 
esting of these new homes is the 
residence of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. 
Craig, a structure that embodies the 
newest’ ideas in home construction. 

Among the novel features of the 
Craig home is the fact that it has 
been built almost entirely of fire¬ 
proof material. Only the interior 
trim and the floors are of wood. 
Solid brick walls throughout the 
house together with steel window 
sash, make it virtually fireproof. 

The Craigs moved into their new 
home only a few days ago. 

The new postoffice, being con¬ 
structed at a cost of $51,000, is ra¬ 
pidly nearing completion and will 
be occupied within the next few 
weeks. It is of attractive brick con¬ 
struction, with handsome light stan¬ 
dards on either side of the entrance. 
R. A. Reid is postmaster. • 

Another recent building project is 
the new filter plant built by Ala¬ 
bama College at a cost of $16,000, 
of which 45 per cent was a grant 
from the Public Works Administra¬ 
tion. The plant obtains its water 
supply from a spring near the new 
viaduct and has a capacity of 300,- 
000 gallons a day. An adequate 
supply of pure water for the use of 
the college, including the model 
dairy and swimming pool, is provid¬ 
ed by the plant. 

Women’s Club Well 

The Business and Professional 
Women’s Club of Montevallo was 
well represented at the tea given 
at the Tutwiler Hotel at 3 o’clock 
Sunday, with the Birmingham Busi¬ 
ness and Professional Women’s 
Club entertaining. Mrs. Dorothy 
Jones Dunn, legislative chairman of 
the National Federation of the Bus¬ 
iness .and Professional Women’s 
Clubs, was guest speaker. 

Members of the local club enjoy¬ 
ing this event were: Mrs. A. W. 
Watson, Mrs. Stanley Mahan, 
Mrs, Charlotte Peterson, Mrs. Mar¬ 
garet Coyle, Mrs. Denson Elliott, 
Mrs. Bruce, Dr. Hallie Farmer, 
Miss" Josephine Eddy, Miss Nell 
Sanders, Miss Touchstone, Mrs. 
Roy Hicks, Miss Catherine Fanch- 
er and Miss Hadley. Other clubs 
throughout the State were repre¬ 
sented also. 

District Engineer Rickey, Mech- 
nical Engineer Russell, both of At¬ 
lanta, District office, covering Post- 
office construction, made a final in¬ 
spection here January 26-28 respec¬ 
tively. The Postmaster was noti¬ 
fied by Construction Engineer Wal¬ 
lace, that the building was ready 
for occupancy Saturday, January 

Sequel to “The Thin Man” 
An Entertainment Smash! 

The mixture of comedy and 
drama which Wl S. Van Dyke un¬ 
failing injects into a mystery 
picture is evident again in his lat¬ 
est effort, “After Teh Thin Man.” 
which comes to the, Strand Sunday 
and Monday, with William Powell 
and Myrna Loy in the starring 

Sequel to that memorable master¬ 
piece of cynema mystery, “The 
Thin Man,” this was written by the 
same author, Dashiell Hammett, 
and surrounds the inimitable stars 
with a sparkling cast of favorites, 
including James Stewart, Elissa 
Landi, Joseph Calleia, Jessie Ralph 
and Asta, the remarkable wire- 
haired terrier of “The Thin Man.” 

Returning from their New York 
venture to their home in San Fran¬ 
cisco, Nick and Nora, of the re¬ 
membered original, crash into mad 
excitement in San Francisco. The 
story carries you into the aristo¬ 
cratic atmosphere of historic Neb 
Hill and by way of contrast into 
the singular maelstrom of China¬ 
town. There is a murder, of course. 

William Powell as the ace de¬ 
tective, Nick Charles excells his 
performance in “The Thin Man,” 
and Myrna Loy reaches a new high 

as his worried wife. The support¬ 
ing cast is excellent throughout and 
the story is up to the standard of 
of* Dashiell Hammeit wno ranks 
among America's foremost mystery 

“The Thin Man” was one of the 
ranking box office pictures of its 
time. Its sequel, judging from au¬ 
dience reaction, is far better than 
"The Thin Man.” 

Mrs. Sallie Latham continues 
very ill at her home. 

Mr. Virgil Cook is now located 
at the Barbecue Stand formerly un¬ 
der the management of Mr. Doc 
Vail, who has opened up a gasoline

Concrete walls on both sides of 
Middle Street adjoining the resi¬ 
dences of R. L. Griffin and the

just been completed. They were 
built of reenforced concrete posts

done by prison labor. 

Liquor Bill Written Into Law 
Over The Governor’s Veto; 
Counties To Vote March 10 

No Legal Whisky Till April 

Under the liquor law enacted yesterday each of the 67 counties 
will determine its status in an election to be held on March 10. 
But Alabama's election law allows 15 days for official tabulation 
of the vote. That will mean that it will be about March 25 be¬ 
fore the Governor may proclaim the results of the election. Then 
several days will be required to establish liquor stores in wet 
counties, assuming that some counties will vote wet. Thus the 
first legal sale of whisky in Alabama in 22 years will not occur 
before April 1. 

The law provides for the sale of whisky and wine, in package 
form only at State stores in the wet counties, with general sale of 
beer. Whisky and wine may be sold in unbroken packages 
at hotels and restaurants provided they purchase it from State 

'A three-man State Alcoholic Control Board will direct the State 
store system in the wet counties, naming a $5,000-a-year admin¬ 
istrator to supervise the work. 

Revenue from the State stores will go 50 per cent to the State’s 
general fund; 10 per cent to the State for public welfare and old 
age pensions; 10 per cent to the general fund of the 67 counties 
(wet or dry) in equal shares; 10 per cent to the counties in equal 
shares for public health, old age pensions, and public welfare; 
and 20 per cent to the cities in which State stores are located. 

Veterans Hospitals 
Coining To State 


Washington.—The Veteran’s Ad¬ 
ministration announced today its 
plans to establish a 250-bed general 
hospital in Alabama at a cost of 
about $1,000,000. 

A site for the institution, “with¬ 
in a 75-mile radius of the Center* of 
the white population," will be se¬ 
lected by a subcommittee of three 
members of the federal board soon 
to be selected. 

The administration said in 1930 
the center of white population was 
near Shelby Springs. Public hear¬ 
ings at which all interested may 
appear will be held before final site 
selection is made. 


The People’s Friend. Society, of 
Alniont, contributed $5.00 to the 
Red Cross fund fort flood sufferers, 
it is reported by Miss Myrtle 
Brooke, County Chapter Chairman. 

A committee of three, Mary King, 
Annie Potts, and Buck Shivers, re¬ 
presented the society in making the

territory but in every phase of its 
life. It is the purpose of these ser

The annual formal prom of the 
Junior Class of Alabama ' College 
was held Saturday evening. 

Decorations, in charge of Eleanor

scepters covered the windows of 
the new dining hall. The walls of

State Liquor Stores To 
Be Set Up, Provided 
In New Act 

Montgomery. Ala.. Feb. 2—Re¬ 
jecting an an executive amendment 
seeking reinstatement of the Sen¬ 
ate original referendum provision 
of the liquor bill and overriding an 
alternative executive veto, the Leg- 
islatijre by impressive majorities 
Tuesday finally enacted a state 
stores liquor control measure which 
becomes effective in wet counties 
after March 10. 

The measure finally written into 
law without the approval of the 
governor and which , goes before 
the voters of Alabama in. a state¬ 
wide local option election, March 
10, in which counties voting wet 
come under its provisions, in effect 
wipes from the statute books the 
22-year-old “bone dry" laws. 

Passed over the governor’s veto 
in the House by a 65 to 32 vote 
and in the Senate by a 20 to 13 
vote, the bill enacted Tuesday re¬ 
moves Alabama from the dwindling 
ranks of legally dry states. 

The bill, moreover, sets up a 
state liquor system in which pack¬ 
age liquors will be sold only in 
state stores, while qualified hotels, 
restaurants and clubs will Ife per¬ 
mitted to sell mixed drinks, and 
with beer to be sold in private bus¬ 
iness channels. 

Action No Surprise 

The action of the two houses in 
passing the bill over the governor’s 
veto did not come as a great sur¬ 
prise to legislative observers since - 
it became known Monday that Gov. 
Graves would seek to reinstate the 
referendum plan which had been 
previously rejected by both houses 
but would not bring pressure on his

Disastrous Flood Moves Down the Mississippi Mass 
Evacuation Prepared—Secretary Perkins Moves 
to Compel General Motors Strike Parley. 


© Western Newspaper Union. 

Malin Craig 

G RADUALLY the terrible flood 
in the Ohio valley subsided, 
but the yellow torrents were pour¬ 
ing down the lower Mississippi and 
the nation was mo- 
i bilized to save the 
people there. By di¬ 
rection of the Pres¬ 
ident and Gen. Mal¬ 
in Craig, chief of 
staff, the army 
made all prepara- 
| tions for the evacu¬ 
ation of all inhabi¬ 
tants along the riv¬ 
er between Cairo, 
Ill., and New Or¬ 
leans. The details 
for this mass move¬ 
ment were worked out to the last 
point by commanding officers in the 
region and thousands of motor 
trucks and railroad flat cars were 
collected. Headquarters for the 
evacuation were set up at Jackson, 

Lieut. Col. Eugene Reybold, dis¬ 
trict engineer at Memphis, ordered 
the prompt delivery of 5,000,000 bur¬ 
lap sacks for the erection of sand¬ 
bag bulwarks, 15 cars of lumber, 210 
outboard motorboats, 300 small 
boats, 300 life jackets, and 1,500 

The secretary of war authorized 
the use of not only regular army 
troops but also members of the 
Civilian Conservation corps, the 
National Guard, and the Red Cross. 

General Craig said that if the bil¬ 
lion dollar levee system, erected 
after the great 1927 flood, failed to 
hold, about the same area affected 
then would be inundated. Many 
thousands of people already had 
been removed from homes along the 
Mississippi, but cities like Memphis 
and Vicksburg, being on high 
ground, were believed to be safe. 
At New Orleans river experts re¬ 
fused to admit danger of a super- 
flood along the lower reaches of the 
river. But Secretary of War Wood¬ 
ring in Washington had reports 
from engineers which said the 
levee system on the lower Missis¬ 
sippi probably would not be able 
to withstand the present flood when 
it reaches its crest. 

At this writing the effects of the 
flood may be thus summarized: 
Homeless, nearly a million. Dead, 

' probably more than 500, including 
200 in Louisville. Damage, conserv¬ 
atively estimated at more than $400,- 

Congress hurried through a defi¬ 
ciency appropriation of $790,000,- 
000 which the President promised 
would be made available for flood 
relief; and the American Red Cross, 
working at high speed, was raising 
a fund of $10,000,000 to which the 
people of the entire country con¬ 
tributed liberally. Supplies of food, 
drinking water, clothing and medi¬ 
cines were poured into the stricken 

Cincinnati, Louisville, Ports¬ 
mouth, Frankfort and Evansville 
were the worst sufferers; but every 
city, town and village along the 
Ohio and its tributaries shared in 
the disaster. Fires broke out in the 
Mill Creek district of Cincinnati and 
destroyed property valued at $1,500,- 
000 before the flames could be con¬ 
trolled. Throughout the entire re¬ 
gion transportation was crippled, 
pure water and fuel supplies were 
shut off or greatly reduced, and 
outbreaks of typhoid and pneumonia 
were threatened. In Louisville the 
light and power plant was forced 
to shut down. 

In Frankfort, Ky., the state re¬ 
formatory was flooded and the pris¬ 
oners were removed to other 
quarters with the aid of troops. The 
convicts took advantage of the 
emergency to start a riot and about 
a dozen were killed. All of southern 
Indiana was placed under martial 
law by Governor Townsend. 

leader of the senate, she asked the 
prompt passage of a bill empower¬ 
ing her department to subpoena per¬ 
sons and papers in connection with 
investigations of strikes. To the 
press Miss Perkins said that once 
she had this power she would sum¬ 
mon Sloan to a meeting with Lewis 
in Washington; but she was not 
sure she could compel him to nego¬ 
tiate a strike settlement. 

Sloan had posted in all General 
Motors plants a denial that the cor¬ 
poration was responsible for the 
breakdown of negotiations and was 
"shirking our mcral responsibil¬ 
ities.” He reiterated his refusal to 
treat with the union so long as 
the sit-down strikers held the plants, 
and continued with a promise to 

“We shall demand that your 
rights and our rights be protected” 
against “a small minority who have 
seized certain plants and are hold¬ 
ing them as ransom to enforce their 

“I say to you once more, have no 
fear. Do not be misled. General 
Motors will never let you down. You 
will not have to pay tribute for the 
privilege of working in a General 
Motors plant.”

F ORTY THOUSAND employees of 
General Motors returned to part 
time work in reopened plants in 
Michigan and Indiana, and were un¬ 
molested by the 
strikers. But the 
deadlock was not 
broken, and the sit- 
down strikers con- _ 
tinued to occupy the ti 
plants they had » 

"kidnaped.” Presi-1 
dent Alfred P. Sloan 
Jr., of General Mo¬ 
tors had refused the 
invitation of Secre¬ 
tary of Labor Per¬ 
kins to meet John L. 

Lewis, chief of the 
striking unions, while the strikers 
were still in forcible possession of 
plants, and President Roosevelt 
ominously termed this refusal "a 
very unfortunate decision on his 
part,” intimating, also, that there 
was a prospect of labor legislation 
unfavorable to the corporation and 
to employers generally. 

Sloan persisting in his attitude, 
Secretary Perkins started a move 
for legislation that would compel 
him to meet Lewis. In identical 
letters to Speaker Bankhead and 
Senator Joe Robinson, majority 

M AYBE it was just a promotion 
stunt for the book, but Senator 
Joseph F. Guffey of Pennsylvania, 
Democrat, introduced in the senate 
a resolution calling 
for an investigation 
of the truth or falsi¬ 
ty of scurrilous 
charges made 
against the Supreme 
Court in "Nine Old 
Men,” a volume au¬ 
thored by two con¬ 
ductors of a Wash¬ 
ington , gossip col¬ 
umn. In offering the 
resolution Guffey 
made a bitter attack 
on the Supreme Court, saying: 

"The President of the United 
States, with his characteristic frank¬ 
ness and courage, has opened for 
debate the most troublesome prob¬ 
lem which we must solve if we are 
to continue a democracy. 

“That problem is—whether the 
Supreme court will permit congress, 
the legislative branch of our gov¬ 
ernment, which was equally trusted 
with the Supreme court by the 
framers of the Constitution, to per¬ 
form its duties in making democra¬ 
cy workable and effective.” 

The senate heard Guffey's speech 
in silence and referred his resolu¬ 
tion to the judiciary committee. 

K ARL RADEK, noted soviet Rus¬ 
sian journalist, and 16 other 
men more or less prominent in the 
affairs of Russia, went to trial as 
conspirators against 
the Stalin regime 
and the soviet state, 
and all freely con¬ 
fessed their guilt. 
They readily told 
the details of the 
amazing plot and as¬ 
serted that the ex¬ 
iled Leon Trotzky 
was its chief mover. 
Radek described the 
scheme by which 
the plotters hoped to 
overthrow Stalin and bring back a 
modified capitalism to Russia. It in¬ 
volved the wrecking of the nation’s 
railway system and the bringing 
about of war on Russia by Japan 
and Germany. Japan was to be 
given the maritime provinces in 
Asia and Germany was to be per¬ 
mitted to grab the Ukraine. But 
Radek added that the conspirators 
hoped the war would result in a 
new revolution in Russia and that 
thereafter those territories could be 
regained. "I am guilty of all the 
charges,” said the once powerful 

Gregori Sokolnikoff, former soviet 
ambassador to England, declared 
he knew as early as 1932 of a plot 
to assassinate Stalin, and admitted 
he vas guilty of plotting to betray 
the Soviet union to Germany and 
Japan. Vladimir Romm, former 
Washington correspondent of Iz- 
vestia of Moscow, though not yet on 
trial, was put on the stand and 
testified that he knew of the anti- 
Stalinist plot, that he carried letters 
from Radek to the exiled Leon

Printed Lace and Other New Prints 

A. P. Sloan 

A rtificial scarcity of farm 
products is abandoned as a pol¬ 
icy for the time being by Secretary 
of Agriculture Wallace. He skid in 
Washington that the two drouth 
years of 1934 and 1936 have brought 
more thought on farm production by 
consumers and farmers than ever 
before. While a year or two of nor¬ 
mal weather would tumble wheat 
prices, if full acreage is planted, the 
time has come for a lifting of the 
restrictions, he said. 

"In the year immediately ahead, 
I feel that farmers should think 
primarily of their duty to consum¬ 
ers,” Wallace said. “I think that in 
the coming year it is wise for us 
to produce as much as we can. We 
should, of course, divert a certain 
amount of corn and cotton acreage 
to soil conserving crops, because 
that will make for greater long time 
productivity of our farm land. 

"But for the most part, let’s .fill 
up the storage bins this year. It is 
good policy to vary the plans for 
storage of crops in the soil accord¬ 
ing to the state of supplies in the 
granary above the ground.” 

to private life," the 


S EEMS as if every type of mate¬ 
rial ever known has gone into 
print. The latest entrant into the 
printed realm is lace. Printed laces 
are the big news in the lace story 
for the coming season. Granted 
that prints for resort wear and for 
spring are more lovely each year 
but never have they risen to greater 
heights of glamor then when col¬ 
orfully printed on sheer Chantilly 
lace which brings the pattern out 

The evening gown in the picture 
is fashioned of printed Chantilly lace, 
the patterning done in green and 
shades of yellow and orange. Black 
ribbons make the shoulder straps 
and belt of this handsome gown. 
And if you want to wear printed 
lace in daytime let it be a blouse 
of printed lace worn with your new 
spring bolero suit—a word to the 
wise is sufficient. 

The advance arrival of new prints 
would indicate that the vogue for the 
spring and summer of 1937 prom¬ 
ises to exeeqd all previous records. 
In the new showings silk prints fair¬ 
ly hold one spellbound with their 
daring, their unusualness and their 
artful art both as to color and de¬ 
sign. The same may be said of 
tne grand and glorious linens, also 
pique prints whose spectacular fling 
at color is simply breathtaking. 

See the youthful contrast jack- 
et-and-skirt costume centered in the 
group illustrated. An ensemble like 
this is an especially smart cruise 
fashion for deck-pacing or for going 
ashore at points enroute. It is 
fashioned of cloque pique combin¬ 
ing print and plain. The fabric is 
one of the new pre-shurnk cottons 
so ideal to wear in warm climates 
where frequent tubbing is neces¬ 

The fact that prints are going 
strong in sunny resort and among 
cruise-faring fashionables in no way

implies that midseason stay-at- 
homes are being left printless. On 
the contrary the prints that are 
peeping from beneath winter coats 
are as refreshing a sight as could 
possibly greet winter-weary eyes. 
The colors are entrancing and the 
patternings are unmistakably 
“new.” The fact that the motifs 
are widely spaced makes for an 
absolutely “different” look. As a 
tonic that acts instantaneously we 
recommend a frock forthwith and 
sans delay made of one of the ra¬ 
diantly colorful new prints. 

An interesting characteristic of 
early arriving modes is that the em¬ 
phasis is placed on the smartness 
and novelty of the print which fash¬ 
ions the dress rather than on its 
making. In fact the new print frocks 
are styled most simple the more to 
show off to advantage the beauty 
of their material which thrills with 
unique designs and dramatic color¬ 

The print fashioning the daytime 
gown shown in the foreground of the 
group ilkistrated makes color-play 
its big feature. Green and red on 
a brown ground is the color scheme. 
The belt is of brown suede. The 
large jewelled clasp (huge ones are 
worn this season) at the neckline 
further emphasizes the idea of strik¬ 
ing color. 

Speaking of the new spring prints 
in general they are newest looking 
when the florals are large and dis¬ 
tinctive and set far apart. Just 
now it is the dark grounds that ap¬ 
peal or that which is ultra chic, the 
background in a vivid color. Pais¬ 
ley patterns and bold stripes are 
especially smart.

J. A. Farley 

postmaster general said, “I would 
like an opportunity to build up an 
equity in a business, so I would 
have something more than just a 
salary for security for my family. 

"I have had several offers al¬ 
ready, but they haven't been just 
what I would want.” 



I will co-operate with other nations 
in the interest of peace, France will 
help Germany to overcome her pres¬ 
ent economic difficulties. Such was 
the offer made by Premier Blum 
in an address at Lyons. Blum, how¬ 
ever, warned the Nazis that France 
cannot and will not co-operate with 
Germany economically or politically 
“while the possibility continues to 
exist that this help may be some 
day turned against the country 
which gave it.” 

He expressed opposition to Hitler's 
policy of making bilateral pacts, 
and added: “I believe I am practic¬ 
ing realism when I declare we do 
not wish to separate French security 
from European peace.” 

German officials were pleased 
by Blum’s speech and said his good 
intentions could not be doubted. 

H AMBURG, Germany, for cen¬ 
turies a “free city,” has lost 
its freedom. Reiehsfuehrer Hitler 
and his cabinet have decreed that 
it shall be known henceforth a s 
Hansa City Hamburg and placed 
under control of Col. Gen. Hermann 
Wilhelm Goering in his capacity as 
commissar for the new four year 
plan for self - sufficiency, together 
with Rudolf Hess, deputy leader of 
the Nazi party; Wilhelm Frick, 
minister of interior, and Count Lud¬ 
wig Schwerin von Krosigk, minister 
of finance. 

The cabinet also took away the 
freedom of Luebeck and incorporat¬ 
ed the city with Prussia, and the 
same fate was decreed for Eutin, 
Cuxhaven and Birkenfeld. Wilhelms- 
haven is absorbed by Oldenburg 

Beige is higa fashion a lin as m 
tact are all shades that suggest cin¬ 
namon and yellowish and delicate 
brownish tints. These colors are 
especially effective in lace and have 
the added advantage of practical¬ 
ity and wearability. The stunning 
lace dress pictured is tailored of 
beige lace, It has a nicety of de¬ 
tail that is recognized at a glance. 
The full skirt lends itself to move¬ 
ment and is most graceful on the 
dance floor. This is a grand type 
for the winter cruise and for pact 
ing up for a southern resort vaca¬ 
tion as well as for the “little" eve¬ 
nings in town. 



Fashion has always decreed that 
you shall be smart—and this year 
that you shall be pretty as well. 
This combination is entirely possi¬ 
ble when you have seen yourself in 
the all-lace hats which are becom¬ 
ing more and more popular for din¬ 
ing out and the theater. One, a 
Schiaparelli model, is helmet like, 
with a conic clown. The lace is 
fixed on wire and gives the Span¬ 
ish touch, which of course is the 
thing this season. 

If you prefer to get your Spanish 
effect in another way, don't forget 
the mantilla. It can do wonders 
towards conveying that air of mys¬ 
tery and romance. And you can 
make it yourself, fashioning it in 
your own way. Some are made of 
squares of Chantilly; others have 
lace borders around net. We noted 
particularly one of plain net, with 
a wide border of lace. They are, in¬ 
cidentally, equally attractive when 
worn as scarves or shawls, and 
even folded in a triangle and tied 
ascot-fashion in front 

Black and White Popular 
for Formal Evening Wear 

Black and white have established 
themselves as the height of for¬ 
mality for evening wear. Used to¬ 
gether, they are always the more 
effective. Seen recently in one of 
the best New York fashion ateliers 
was a formal gown of white lace, 
pailletted all over with rhinestones, 
and over it was worn a charming, 
hiplength jacket of black net. Fit¬ 
ted snugly at the waistline, and with 
straight sleeves slightly puffed at 
the shoulder, it flared out in a full 
peplum below the waist. 

The black net jacket suggested it¬ 
self as an admirable light wrap to 
i be worn with all evening dresses.

Ltfli Desti is not going to be like 
other foreign film stars who come 
to Hollywood to make pictures. Usu¬ 
ally the newcomers spend about six 
days in New York, seeing nothing 
of our country but night clubs and 
theaters, photographers and inter¬ 
viewers, before they rush to 
Hollywood by airplane or fast¬ 
est train. Miss Desti, on her 
arrival from England, persuaded 
Paramount officials to let her drive 
across country in leisurely fashion 
so that she could really get ac¬ 
quainted with us before starting 
work in our studios. She won’t 
even hazard a guess about how long 
it will take her, because she knows 
that she will never be able to resist 
going off her carefully-marked route 
to explore side roads. 


If good wishes make good pic¬ 
tures, “Steel Highway” will be one 
of the best of the year. It was rushed 
into production in order to keep Ann 
Nagel so busy that she could not 
brood over the tragic death of her 
■husband, Ross Alexander. In this 
picture she plays a leading role for 
the first time. Another good reason 
why everyone is pulling for the suc¬ 
cess of this picture is that a new¬ 
comer is playing opposite her. And 
the newcomer is none other than 
William Hopper, son of Hedda Hop¬ 

Young players in Hollywood have 
every reason to be grateful to Hedda 
Hopper, and they are. They flock 
to her for advice on clothes and for 
help in studying their lines. Young 
brides who grow panicky about 
playing hostess at their first big 
party (and who doesn’t) consult her 
about refreshments and decorations, 
how many extra servants to get in, 
what entertainment to offer and all 
that. And then they usually insist 
that she be the first guest to arrive, 
the last to go.

Then Jerrell’s bags were in; they 
were away. Returning along the 
shore of the island, they saw Dan

by the intervening trees; and the 
girl waved to them.

But the Doctor was so insistent 
that Jerrell had in tho end to sub¬ 
mit, or by an outright refusal seem 
ungracious. “You act as if this 
were life or death, Ned,” he pro¬ 
tested, amused and yet annoyed, 

Doctor Greeding nodded. “It’s my 
hobby," he assented, laughingly. “I 
suppose I do ride it hard." 

There was in fact a strange ur¬ 
gency in the man. He shepherded 
them up the path to the court like 
a dog nipping at their heels, and 
Dan and Nancy met them there. 

Doctor Greeding chuckled. “All 
that I need is some competition,” 
he declared. “You’ll be surprised!” 
Dan had the pistol in his hand, and 
Doctor Greeding took it from him 
and turned to Jerrell. 

“But first, Ira, you give us a 
horrible example,” he suggested 
laughingly. “Show us how not to 
do it!” He looked up the court, and 
saw that there was a fresh target 
on the frame; he examined the 
pistol. “Here," he said. “It’s ready. 
All you have to do is point it at 
the target and pull the trigger. 

There was an unreality about 
what so swiftly followed. Jerrell 
was driven like a sheep. Reluctant¬ 
ly he took the weapon in his hands, 
thoroughly ill at ease, handling it 

"I don’t know anything about 
these things,” he protested. 

“You don’t need to. Just point 
and pull,” Doctor Greeding insisted. 
“Go ahead! Aim at the black spot 
on the target. Hold the pistol so 
the fore sight is just in the middle 
of the notch in the rear sight. Then 
press the trigger slowly, till it 

And Jerrell, after a moment, in¬ 
differently obeyed. A splinter flew 
from the edge of the batter-board. 

Greeding laughed. “Six feet wide, 
Ira! Don’t you see the target, 

Jerrell, hoping to finish this or¬ 
deal, hurriedly tried again, and then 
again. But his shots were wild. Be¬ 
tween shots. Doctor Greeding 
coached him, showing him how to 
stand, how to hold the pistol, how 
to press the trigger; but Jerrell 
at length lowered the weapon, 
turned aside, shook his head, laugh¬ 
ing uncomfortably. 

“That’s enough,” he insisted. "It’s 
not my game.” 

Doctor Greeding chuckled, and 
received the weapon from Jerrell’s 
hand. "Wait a minute. Don’t give 
up yet,” he persisted. “Let me 
show you how it’s done!” 

He fired rapidly, two or three 
times. “There,” he said. “Like 
that! Now Dan, go put up a fresh 
target, will you? Ira’s got to score 
one hit, at least, before I let him 
off.” He took the empty magazine 
out of the pistol and turned to 
Jerrell. “Try it without actually 
shooting,” he suggested, and 
pressed the weapon into Jerrell’s 
hands. “Maybe you’re flinching, 
afraid of it. Just aim, and snap 
the trigger!” 

Dan had gone obediently toward 
the other end of the court to fix 
a new target on the frame. Jerrell 
protested half angrily: “Ned, I 
don’t want to shoot, I tell you.” 

But Doctor Greeding still insisted. 
“Don’t be an ass, Ira. If you can 
make the stock-market sit up and 
beg, you ought to be able to point 
a pistol at a target. I’ll stand be¬ 
hind you, see whether you’re aim¬ 
ing properly!” j 

Jerrell was flushed and furious, 
yet it was impossible to refuse with¬ 
out actual offense. He lifted the 
weapon and faced the target yon¬ 

der; and Doctor Greeding said, be¬ 
hind him: 

“All right, now go ahead.” 

Jerrell pointed the pistol in the 
general direction of the other end 
of the court; but as he did so, 
Dan, his task concluded, turned and 
saw him and cried quickly: 

“Hey, don’t aim that thing at 

Nancy had been watching Jerrell, 
sorry for him because her father 
pressed him so tactlessly, but also 
puzzled by something in his coun¬ 
tenance. She saw his lips compress, 
and veins on his forehead swell as 
though he were engaged in an actual 
physical struggle. But when Dan 
called his protest, she looked that 

Her father, here at Jerrell’s shoul¬ 
der, said reassuringly: 

“Don’t worry, Dan! Gun’s 

And then—the shot, in the still 
air of midafternoon, rang loud and 
startlingly. Nancy saw Dan, in the 
ve^y act of moving to one side out 
of fine with the pistol’s muzzle, 
clasp his middle with both hands 
and slump quietly forward on his 
knees. He bowed down and fell, a 
little on his side, very quietly. 

There was something terrible in 
that quietness. 

Nancy was standing a little to one 
side, near Mary Ann; and when Dan 
fell, she remained a mordant *v> 
i tio’nlj'xs, VI bJV* senses in suspen¬ 
sion, unable to think or move, able 
only to see. 

She saw Dan lying there so quiet 
on the ground and she saw Jerrell 
staring incredulously at the pistol 
in his hands. She saw her father 
turn to Jerrell, leap toward him, 
snatch the weapon away. He cried 
out, furiously: 

"You clumsy fool! Give me that 

Then some one brushed her shoul¬ 
der, spinning her half around. It 
was Mary Ann, darting past her, 
running to where Dan lay. 

Nancy was still too dazed fully 
to understand. This was one of 
those occurrences which the mind 
cannot quickly grasp. 

Now Nancy felt at first neither 
grief nor fear. She knew that Dan 
lay yonder on the court, but her 
only emotional reaction to the fact 
was annoyance. She went toward 
him, saying aloud: 

“Dan, don’t pretend! You’re scar¬ 
ing me!” 

Mary Ann, already by his' side, 
kneeling there, looked up quickly 
over her shoulder at the girl; she 
said gently: 

“He’s shot, Nancy!” 

Doctor Greeding and Jerrel came 
toward them; and Jerrell said 

“The gun insisted on pointing at 
him. I couldn’t drag it away—” 
His tones were hollow and flat. “It 
was as though some one had hold 
of it,” he insisted, in a stubborn, 
dazed bewilderment. 

Doctor Greeding said icily: “It 
was pure clumsiness, Ira.” 

But Mary Ann spoke to him. 
“Doctor'Greeding,” she called. She 
was crisply insistent. “Never mind 
blaming anyone now. Here, 

Nancy moved aside to let her 
father come at Dan. He knelt 
there, but he shook his head. “He’s 
dead,” he said. 

Mary Ann said sharply: “He’s 
not, either! See!” 

"Not dead?” Doctor Greeding ex¬ 
claimed. There was in his tone 
incredulous surprise like dismay. 
He stared at Mary Ann. “He must 
be!” he muttered; and his eyes 
were wide, glassy, staring. 

Mary Ann shook his arm. “No! 
What’s the matter with you, Doc¬ 
tor? Quick! He’s still alive!” 

“But I tell you—” Doctor Greed¬ 
ing insisted. 

“Look at him!" she exclaimed. 
Then, more sharply: “Look at him! 
Don’t stare at me!” 

And after a moment he did turn 
his eyes from her to the man here 
on the ground. 

Then Nancy saw Dan looking up 
at her, lis lids half closed. He 
grinned. “All right, Nancy,” he 

Her heart leaped. She cried: 
“Father, he’s all right. See!” 

Doctor Greeding fought back to 
self-control; he began a swift ex¬ 
amination. Nancy’s eyes blurred 
with tears, but she heard buttons 
yield, and the movement of gar¬ 
ments, and saw Dan’s white flesh, 
and saw through misty eyes the 

“Does it hurt, darling?” she 
pleaded. “Does it?” 

Dan shook his head, his white lips 
grinned. “Not a bit,” he said weak¬ 
ly. “Tell Mr. Jerrell—it’s all right 

Jerrell, somewhere above them, 
standing over them, cried: “Dan, 
I swear I tried not to. Something—” 

Mary Ann flashed one glance to¬ 
ward him, reassuring, comforting. 

Then she watched Doctor Greed¬ 
ing. He met her eyes and shook his 
head in negation. 

Her cheeks flamed. She cried: 
“You can help him! You can op¬ 

The doctor protested: “Hopeless! 
I’ve nothing here to work with.” 

Mary Ann stood up. “We’ll man¬ 
age.” she insisted. ‘You’ve got to. 
Quickly. We can’t just—give up!" 

He faced her. “Mary Ann," he 
said gravely. “If we could act in¬ 
stantly, there might be a slim 
chance; but as it is—to get him to 
the mainland, to the hospital, to 
move him. It’s hopeless!” 

He added: “And even if there 
were time, it would need a miracle 
to save him!” 

Mary Ann held his eyes with hers. 
“You can do,” she said, 
her tones vibrant, compelling. “I 
know. I’ve seen them. But it wasn’t 
anything I could see. Oh, I’ve seen 
what you did with your hands, your 
instruments. Everything you did! 
But it wasn't what you did! It was 
something inside you.” She caught 
his arms, grasped them firmly. 
“You must do a miracle for Dan,” 
she said. 

She spoke quickly to Nancy. 
“Your father will have to operate, 
here, at once. In the house. With 
plenty of light. A table, some¬ 

Nancy caught strength from Mary 
Ann. She suggested steadily: “The 
kitchen. There’s a big skylight, and 
a long table.” 

Mary Ann nodded. “Perfect.” She 
turned to Jerrell. She saw then 
that he stood white and shamed 
and sorrowful; and she went to him, 
and rose on tiptoe to kiss him— 
touched his cheek reassuringly! 

“Don’t—worry. You must—help 
us, Ira,” she said. “Get something 
to carry Dan into the house—some¬ 
thing so that he can lie flat. I will 
telephone the nearest hospital. 
Where is it, Nancy?” 

Nancy told her. Jerrell, instantly 
galvanized into activity, was al¬ 
ready running toward the house. 
Mary Ann looked at Doctor Greed¬ 
ing. “You will need," she reflected, 
“these things.” And she named 

them, in a swift catalogue. “Any¬ 
thing else?” 

Doctor Greeding said gently: 
“No, that will do. But—it’s no 
use, Mary Ann!” 

The girl ignored his word. "I’ll 
have them send everything,” she 
said, moving toward the path; and 

then, to Nancy: “While I’m phon¬ 
ing, get water boiling. Get Dan on 
the table. Find some razor-blades 
—new ones, if you can—and put 
them on to boil. And if you’ve some 
blunt-ended scissors. Or any scis¬ 
sors will do. And thread, and big 
needles. And big spoons. Put ev¬ 
erything on to boil. But first come 
show me where the telephone is. 
I'll call the hospital, and then I'll— 
search the house, see what I can 
find. There must be first * aid 

They went swiftly together toward 
the house, and Doctor Greeding was 
left alone here beside Dan. 

The man stood looking down, his 
eyes brooding. His universe was 
chaos in this hour. The discovery 
that Dan was not dead—though his 
wound must almost certainly prove 
fatal—had struck Doctor Greeding 
with a shocking force. 

Dan, the rock upon which all his 
hopes and plans were shattered, Dan 
whom he hated and whom he had 
meant should die—was still alive! 

And he had meant that Dan should 
die by Jerrell’s carelessness, so that 
Mary Ann would abhor the man. 
Yet—here a moment ago—Mary 
Ann had kissed Jerrell on the lips. 
She loved her brother; she should 
for his carelessness hate Jerrell. 
But instead, she had kissed him, in 
comfort and in love. 

Doctor Greeding could not recog¬ 
nize the world so long familiar. He 
felt himself under the glance of a 
stern, condemning eye; he seemed 
to hear mockery in the air, and a 
derisive laughter. 

He spoke, without knowing it, 
aloud. “He must diet He can’t 
live;” he muttered. 

Dan on the ground at his feet, 
said stubbornly, without opening his 
eyes: “I’m not dead yet. Doctor!” 

And the older man said, crush- 
ingly: “You’re badly hurt! Don't 
nurse any futile hopes.” 

But Dan would not by words alone 
be daunted. His mouth twisted in 
a grin. "I’ll show you something 
about getting well that you never 
saw before.” he insisted, laboring 
over his words. "I'm—telling you! ” 

Doctor Greeding shook with a 
murderous rage; Dan was like a 
scotched snake, to be crushed un¬ 
der a grinding heel. The Doctor 
looked over his shoulder toward the 
path along which Nancy and Mary 
Ann had disappeared. There was no 
one in sight. His eyes searched all 
around; and then he knelt beside 
Dan again, his countenance contort¬ 
ed. If the man were not now dead, 
yet he must die! 

But Nancy called, from the path: 
“I’m coming, Dan.” So Doctor 
Greeding stood up quickly, brushing 
his hands together, withdrawing 
from the stricken man. 

Yet he took only a grudging and 
reluctant hand in what immediate¬ 
ly followed. Thomas and Jerrell 
and Nancy and her father worked 
together. Thomas had brought one 
of the shutters used to seal the win¬ 
dows of the house in winter; and 
they laid it on the ground, and man¬ 
aged as gently as possible to lift 
Dan upon it. His breath whistled 
through dry lips, and his mouth 
twisted, but he did not speak or 

They lifted him, and with Nancy 
and her father at one end, Jerrell 
and Thomas at the other, they car¬ 
ried the shutter and its burden 

across the court and through the 
gate, and along the path toward the 
house. They came to the kitchen 
door. Ruth, and Margaret, the cook, 
had made all ready there. They 
bore Dan into the kitchen, and laid 
the shutter upon which he rested 
on the table, and Doctor Greeding 
felt the hurt man’s pulse. 

Nancy turned quickly to the serv¬ 
ants. “Margaret,” she directed, 
“you keep the kettles boiling. Ruth, 
bring blankets and sheets and pil¬ 
lows. Lots of them. Clean ones. 
Don’t let them touch anything, the 
wall or anything.” 

Old Margaret, white-faced but 
steady, turned to the stove. Ruth, 
pale as death, departed to do as 
Nancy bade her. Jerrell stood si¬ 
lent by the kitchen door, waiting for 
commands; and Thomas went stol¬ 
idly out of doors, a lumpish man not 
easily dismayed. Doctor Greeding 
looked around at them all—saw 
Margaret, her back turned, busy at 
the stove, and he said softly: 

“Nancy, and you, Ira, you'd bet¬ 
ter leave me with him." He might 
even now find the opportunity to do 
what he intended. 

But Naney answered stoutly: 
“I'm never going to leave him 
again. Never!" 

Then Mary Ann, her hands full, 
came through the pantry. "I got 
the hospital on the phone,” she re¬ 
ported. “They’re sending every¬ 
thing. Nancy, have some one meet 
the car at the landing. And I’ve 
been rummaging the hou;e for 
things we could use.” She spoke to 
Doctor Greeding. “You can begin 
with what I have here. By the time 
you’re ready to close the wound, 
the things from the hospital will 
have come.” 

He said stubbornly: “Dan is 
sinking, Mary Ann. This is valor¬ 
ous, but it is futile too.” 

She deposited her burden on the 
draining-board beside the sink and

took Dan’s wrist in her hand; and 
after a moment she said crisply: 

“His pulse is not bad!” 

Then, almost sternly: "Doctor 
Greeding, I have seen you do mir¬ 
acles. You didn’t do them with in¬ 
struments, and equipment. You did 
them with the gift of healing that is 
in you. You can do one now!” 

The man’s eyes flickered uncer¬ 
tainly, in a sort of desperation; and 
beads of perspiration appeared up¬ 
on his brow. He repeated after her, 
like a lesson learned by rote: “1 
can do one now.” Then his color 
flamed, and he seemed about to 
speak, to refuse. But in the end, as 
though surrendering, he said de¬ 
cisively: “Quick, then!” 

Mary Ann nodded; turned back to 
the sink. “I found this can of ether, 
in the bathroom closet upstairs,” 
she reported. “It’s never been 
opened. And here’s iodine, and al¬ 
cohol, and gauze for sponges—” 

Mary Ann went to the stove to in¬ 
spect the things boiling there; she 
nodded, satisfied. And she turned 
to Nancy, looked at her apprais¬ 

“Do you want to stay, to help?” 
she asked. 

“Yes,” said Nancy. 

"You will stand up to it,” Mary 
Ann decided. "But first, send some 
one to meet the car from the hos¬ 
pital, at the landing." 

Jerrell volunteered: “I’ll go.” 

And so, grateful for even this 
small chance to help, he hurried 
away, and Mary Ann turned back to 
Doctor Greeding. The man was still 
like one dreaming, bewildered, 
stunned. Mary Ann, because she 
knew exactly what she wished for, 
commanded him in his uncertain¬ 
ties. “Go take off your clothes,” 
she directed. “Pm on bathing- 
trunks. We’ll have to do without 
gloves. I’ll contrive a mask. Nan¬ 
cy and I will get him ready. You 
can scrub from the waist up. Come 
back quickly.” 

He turned submissively away; 
and then Ruth appeared, her arms 
full of linen. 

Nancy with the help of Mary 
Ann stripped off Dan's garments, 
and while Mary Ann and Ruth lifted 
first his head and then his feet 
Nancy slipped under his body 
blankets and sheets to cushion the 
hard shutter on which he still lay. 
A pillow under his head; then 
sheets over him, expertly slit and 
folded to expose the field in which 
Doctor Greeding must work. 

Once Dan whispered something, 
weakly, and Mary Ann said: "Hush, 
dear. Rest!” 


“Mother of Thanksgiving” 
/~\F COURSE, we all know we 
owe the observance of Thanks¬ 
giving to the Pilgrim forefathers. 
But if it hadn’t been for the persist¬ 
ence of a woman editor the chances 
are that it would still be only a New 
England festival instead of a na¬ 
tionwide holiday celebrated in all 
states on the last Thursday in No¬ 
vember. Sara Josepha Hale was 
her name and she was the editor 
of Godey’s Lady’s Book, the most 
popular woman’s magazine of the 
Nineteenth century. 

She was born in New Hampshire 
in 1788, and, like all New England¬ 
ers, the celebration of Thanks¬ 
giving. even though its observance 
was not a regular event, was very 
dear to her. As early as 1827 she 
began advocating that "Thanksgiv¬ 
ing, like the Fourth of July, should 
be considered a national festival 
and observed by all our people.” 
But it was not until 1846 that she 
began her campaign through the 
column’s of Godey's Lady's Book, of 
which she became editor in 1828. 

Early each spring she began writ¬ 
ing letters to governors of all states 
and territories asking their assist¬ 
ance in making the last Thursday 
in November, which had been Wash¬ 
ington’s choice for the first Thanks¬ 
giving Day, set aside by Presiden¬ 
tial proclamation. By 1849 most of 
these commonwealths were keeping 
individual festivals but no attempt 
was made to have the date uni¬ 
form. So Mrs. Hale started on the 

She wrote to Fillmore, Pierce and 
Buchanan again and again. But all 
of them ignored her, for they felt 
that such “feminine meddling in 
public affairs” should be frowned 
upon. However, in 1863, as the re¬ 
sult of a letter which she wrote to 
President Lincoln, he issued the 
first national Thanksgiving day 
proclamation since Washington’s 
day. Mrs. Hale had won her battle 
after 17 years’ effort. With the 
precedent thus established other 
Presidents, as well as governors of 
states, have never deviated from 
the custom which Lincoln thus es¬ 

Being thus the "Mother of 
Thanksgiving” was not, however, 
Mrs. Hale's only claim to distinc¬ 
tion. She was the author of that fa¬ 
mous poem, “Mary Had a Little 
Lamb”; she was the first to advo¬ 
cate women teachers in public 
schools; she started the first day 
nursery; she founded the first so¬ 
ciety for the advancement of wom¬ 
en's wages, and her demands that 
housekeeping be given the dignity 
of a profession put the term “do¬ 
mestic science” in our language. 

Prisoner of War 

I N THE year 1758 there was born 
to an English family, then liv¬ 
ing in Ireland, a son who was to 
bear the name of John Whistler. 
Before he became of age young 
John ran away from home and en¬ 
listed in the British army. In 1777 
he was sent to America with troops 
who were to serve under General 
Burgoyne and when “Gentleman 
Johnny’s” expedition ended in dis¬ 
aster at Saratoga, young John 
Whistler was a prisoner of war. 

Before the end of the Revolution 
he was sent back to England as an 
exchanged prisoner and soon after¬ 
wards he was discharged from the 
army. Then he fell in love with 
the daughter of one of his father’s 
friends, eloped with her, came to 
America a second time and settled 
down at Hagerstown, Md. But he 
could not be content with civilian 
life for long. So in 1791 this soldier 
who-Jiad worn the scarlet uniform 
of Old England put on the nonde¬ 
script uniform of a lieutenant adju¬ 
tant in the levies which made up a 
part of the army of the new repub¬ 

From that time on he served con¬ 
tinuously on the Northwestern fron¬ 
tier under St. Clair, Wayne and the 
others who were campaigning 
against the hostile Indians. By 1797 
he had won a captaincy and in 1803 
he was stationed at Detroit. Then 
orders were g.ven to build a fort 
at the foot of Lake Michigan and 
establish a garrison there with 
Whistler as commandant. Accord¬ 
ingly he built the post which was 
named Fort Dearborn and thus he 
becapre the “father of Chicago.” 

For nine years Whistler ruled at 
Fort Dearborn and then he was or¬ 
dered back to Detroit. At the out¬ 
break of the War of 1812 he was 
serving there on the staff of General 
Hull and when that flustered offi¬ 
cer, without attempting resistance, 
surrendered his post to the British 
army which swooped down upon 
kn, Whistler again became a pris¬ 
oner of war. 

So his was the unique distinction 
of having been a British officer who 
surrendered to a victorious Ameri¬ 
can army and then an American 
officer who surrendered to a vic¬ 
torious British army. That alone 
would make him an "uncommon 
American” even if he hadn’t been 
the “Father of Chicago” and the 
man whose grandson became one oi 
the greatest of all American artists 
—James Abbott McNeill Whistler.

Published weekly in the Masonic 
Building on Main Street. “Entered 
as second-class matter, April 1, 
1933, at the Post Office at Monte¬ 
vallo, Ala., under the Act of Con¬ 
gress, March 3, 1879." 


The regular meeting of Monte¬ 
vallo Civic Club was held at noon 
Wednesday at the Baptist Church. 
President, Luther Shaw, presided. 
A delightful luncheon was served 
by the Baptist ladies. 

Z. S. Cowart, chairman of the 
Welfare Committee, reported that 
a fine response has been made by 
the people of Montevallo and vicin¬ 
ity* to the emergency appeal in be¬ 
half of the needy people of West 
Shelby. Work of solicitation, he 
said is going forward at Calera and 
some other communities. The drive 
will be completed, according to 
plans, during February. 

Dr. A. W. Vaughan, chairman oi 
the Commercial Development Com¬ 
mittee, reported activity of that 
committee toward establishment of 
a produce market) in Montevallo to

Mayor Acker reported an inter¬ 
view with a representative of the 
Public Service Commission relative 
to establishment of a town office 
of the Western Union Telegraph 
Company here. An alternate offer 
was proposed by this representa¬ 
tive, the Mayor said, which pro¬ 
vides for agency of the telegraph 
company to be establshed at some 
business place, from which messages 
may be sent and received. Upon re¬ 
quest for expression of the town on 
the proposal, the matter was re¬ 
ferred to the Committee on Town 
Development for early action. 

Dr. Hallic Farmer, oi Alabama 
College faculty, and Town Council 
member, was the guest speaker. 
She made some very forceful ob¬ 
servations concerning the future oi 
Montevallo, touching the subjects 
of public sanitation, public safety, 
town beauty and recreation facili¬ 
ties for the youth. She ventured 
advocation of a town planning com¬ 
mission, to study in a representative 
manner, plans for direction of pub¬ 
lic activities toward building every 
phase of the community toward a 
higher ideal for the future. 

This address of Dr. Farmer, 
though short, was weighty, evidenc¬ 
ing that she is a leader of excep- 
tionel ability, full of inspiration, in¬ 
formation and zeal for the common 
welfare. She challenges us with 
her conceptions of the future for 


It is exceedingly difficult to pre¬ 
sent a fair appraisal of industry’s 
condition these days. There are 
so many conflicting factors, so 
many diverse influences, that it is 
next to impossible to use the or¬ 
dinary barometers in measuring ac¬ 
tual achievements and failures. 

One school of business commen¬ 
tators takes it for granted that 
continued prosperity is assured, and 
gives the credit to the New Deal. 
Another school is extremely anti- 
Mew Deal, and discounts advances 
that have been made. The third 
school attempts the difficult job of 
analyzing conditions without bia* 
or prejudice and, as is usual in such 
matters, this school probably comes 
nearest to being right. 

Mr. Roosevelt’s second inaugu¬ 
ral has naturally caused compari¬ 
sons between conditions as they 
were when he took office in 1933, 
and conditions as they are today. 
And the picture, in the view of the 
hard-headed commentators, is mix¬ 
ed and bewildering. 

The United States News recent¬ 
ly made a neat summing up of the 
Administration assets and credits 
as they apply to industry. In the 
first four years of the present ad¬ 
ministration industrial production 
made remarkable advances. Some 
industries even exceeded their 
boom period experience and are op¬ 
erating at record production levels. 
The national income has been in¬ 
creased 50 per cent—from $40,000,- 
000,000 to $60,000,000,000. The agri¬ 
cultural income is approximating 
its pre-depression ratio to the to¬ 
tal national income. Commodity 
prices are not far from the 1923-25 
normal. Bank deposits have ad¬ 
vanced more than 50 per cent—from 
$40,000,000,000 to $62,000,000,000. 

All this is on the credit side. On 
the debit side are a number of vital 
problems which have not yet been 
solved. Unemployment still hovers 
around the 9,000,000 mark—at the 
peak, in 1933, it touched an es¬ 
timated 15,000,000. In spite of bet¬ 
ter business and increased consum¬ 
er income and spending, relief ex¬ 
penditures are practically as great 
as ever. The Federal debt is at 
an all-time record figure, and the 
budget is as yet unbalanced. Tax¬ 
es on industry—as well as on in¬ 
dividuals—are at record levels. 

So as the administration enters 
its second term, it can look back 
with, satisfaction on various achiev- 
ments made during the first four 
years—but it must also look ahead 
to issues and conditions that are 

undecided, and that are as serious 
now as they were in the worst of 
the slump. 

First indication of what the Pres¬ 
ident intends for the second four 
years of the Administration, is in 
his inaugural address. This speech 
was commended on its phrasing and 
eloquence. Newspapers which are 
generally opposed to the Adminis¬ 
tration found much to admire in 
its context. There is a growing 
feeling that the administration will 
not go farther left this term than it 
has — some think that it is taking a 
right turn. 

Interesting fact is that the much 
famed “Brain Trust”—made up of 
so-called liberals and radicals — is 
entirely dissolved. All of the major 
figures of this once powerful group 
are out of public life, a number 
having accepted high-salaried pri¬ 
vate enterprise jobs. 

Business Week has made a study 
of advertising expenditures during 
1936, finds that they were all ahead 
of preceding years. And it fore¬ 
casts that 1937 will be a good year 
for publication so far as advertising 
is concerned—partly because of the 
undistributed earnings tax. Reason 
for that is that businesses would 
iather spend money for space than 
for taxes—in effect, the tax creates 
an “advertising discount" ranging 
up to 32 per cent. 

During the last half of 1936, the 
increase in advertising spending ov¬ 
er the same period in 1935 was sub¬ 
stantially greater than the percent¬ 
age improvement in business gene¬ 
rally. Big gain in advertising line¬ 
age was made by big magazines— 
25.31 per pent. Newspapers went 
ahead 19.79 per cent. And chain 
radio made the greatest gain of all 
— 31.99 per cent. 

The average rates charged by 
magazines declined in the women s 
and farm fields. They advanced in 
general, special and weekly fields. 
The largest increase in revenue— 
40.94 per cent—was registered in 
the special field, where the rate 
increase, 11.43 per cent, was also 

Biggest magazine advertiser was 
General Motors, which spent $7,- 
231,260 in 1936; followed by Chrys¬

co, $3,202,313; Proctor and Gamble, 
$2,440,000 each. A, d v q r t i s c rs

The variety, of corn is a big fac¬ 
tor in the yield per acre and the re¬ 
turns for effort expended. 

The Alabama Experiment Station 
makes tests of the leading varities 
of corn to determine the best for 
the various sections of Alabama. I 
hope that this information will be 
of value to the farmers of Shelby 
County in selecting tlie variety to 
be used in 1937.

There were 6,368 bales of cotton 
nned in Shelby Comity from the 
op of 1936 prior to January 16,

nned to January 1 16, 1 1936, crop of 

We realize the high per acre cost 
of producing cotton, and the variety 
used is a big factor in the yield per 
acre and the final returns for ef¬ 
fort expended. 

The Alabama Experiment Sta¬ 
tion tests more than 40 of the best 
known cotton varieties each year to 
determine what varieties are best 
suited for the various sections xif 
the State. I am giving you the re¬ 
sults of the leading varieties in these 
tests to assist you in making the 
selection you will use in 1937. 

The following table shows Cotton 
Variety Tests for Central Alabama. 
(1) Variety, (2) lint yield per acre, 
and (3) average staple length in 
1 1-32 inches. 

D. P. L. No. 11'_ 494 lbs — 31.9 

Half and Half. 488 lbs .. 25.9 

Stoneville No. 5 - 483 IPs — 30.7 

Cook 1627 .— 466 lbs .. 29.3 

Stoneville No. 3 465 lbs __ 31.0 

The Experiment Station does not 
recommend varieties of cotton that 
produce less than 7-8 of 28-32 of 
an inch in length. 

It is generally recognicd that low 
yields per acre of corn and cotton 
are closely associated with high 
cost of production, and cost of pro¬ 
duction has as much to do with 
profits or losses in the farming in¬ 
dustry as the selling price of the 
product. The farmers of Shelby 
County have a much better chance 
to lower the cost of production than 
to raise the selling price of the pro¬ 

All farmers concede that fertiliz¬ 
ers are profitable and important in 
crop production; since the cost of 
fertilizer is so large a factor in the 
cost of crop production, and the 
grade used is also such a big fac¬ 
tor in the yield per acre, I am giv¬ 
ing you the result of the fertilizer 
work carried on by 1 the Alabama 
Experiment Station : 

Results of corn fertilizer tests 

are shown by the following: (U

6-0-0..-.33.3 bu. 

The above fertilizers were used at 
the rate of 600 pounds per acre. 

The 0-10-4 carried as much phos¬ 
phate and potash as the 6-10-4, but 
17.8 buphels less corn per acre 

were produced; so the 6% nitrogen 
in the 6-10-4 produced 17.8 bushels 
of corn. 

The 6-0-0 produced 33.3 bushels 
of corn, while 6-10-4 produced 33.7 
bushels. The 10 Vr phosphate and 
4 c /< potash produced only 4-10 oi 
a bushel more corn per acre than 
the fertilizer carrying nitrogen 
alone. The above results show that 
nitrogen alone pays on corn.

In comparing the results of 6-8-4 
and 6-10-4 the extra 2 % phosphate 
in 6-10-4 only produced 28 pounds 
of seed cotton which did not re¬ 
turn a profit above the cost of the 

In comparing the 6-8-4 and the 
3-8-5, the 6-8-4 produced 238 pounds 
more seed cotton per acre, or 
about $11.90 more cotton per acre 
than the 3-8-5. 

In the light of the above results, 
the Experiment Station recom¬ 
mends that farmers use 6-8-4 ferti¬ 
lizer at the rate up to 600 pounds 
per acre. 

The World War was a volcanic 
outbreak with thunder, fire, ashes, 
and lava, which, however, soon 
subsided and made the soil in parts 

In order to prevent another war, 
forces Tiust be organized against 
it. Lhbor has not considered war 
as a very important plank in the 
political platform, but since the 
World War it has become more- 
conspicuous. The struggle for peace 
must take a more prominent place 
in labor’s thoughts. It doesn't 
help much to gain economic ano 
political advantages if a progres¬ 
sive movement towards war nulli¬ 
fies them. If the two strong forces 
labor and capital would cooperate 
to prevent war, we should at our 
disposal have the strongest active 
force for its prevention. 

All Americans who hope for the 
preservation of the nation’s peace 
will honor the action of the Bausclt 
and Lomb Optical Co. of Rochester, 
New-York, in turning down con¬ 
tracts for several million dollar’s 
worth of artillery fire-control in¬ 
struments ordered by European 
governments. Since B&usch and 
Lomb ranks with the Zeiss plant 
at Jena as one of the world’s great¬ 
est optical manufacturers, this 

.American firm has not only pass¬ 
ed up present orders of consider¬ 
able magnitude but it has shut the 
door against future market of 
enormous size. 

Here is an American manufactur¬ 
ing company, obviously offered a 
chance to attain great prosperity 
by' nurturing a “war baby" boom. 
The company has refused the 
chance, and announces that It will 
refuse continually. It does not in¬ 
tend to allow' its profits to become 
dependent on Europe’s armament 
race. Neither does it intend to 
have the time come when its sol¬ 
vency, in terms of bills outstanding 
and collectable, depend on which 
side wins in war. 

In reaching this formulation of 
policy', Bausch and Lomb has put 
its finger on the nub of our neu¬ 
trality problem. America’s neutral¬ 
ity is not finally a matter of laws 
enacted by congress, although those 
are important. It finally' comes 
down to a test of the amount of 
self-denial which American busi¬ 
ness interests are willing to accept 
when the temptation of easy pro¬ 
fits beckons from the \var-harried

'T’HE main purpose of any large dam, 
in which is installed generating 
equipment in keeping with the size of 
the dam, is to generate electricity. In¬ 
cidental results can be lessening the ef¬ 
fects of floods. 

No dam can completely eliminate 
floods, because if there’s more than 
enough rain to fill the lake behind the 
dam, the surplus water must run over 
the dam. But by releasing water from 
the lake during dry weather, and storing 
water during rainy weather, the devasta¬ 
tion of floods can be lessened; and when 
they do occur, they come so gradually 
that persons in lowlands will not be sud¬ 
denly trapped. 

The chief purpose of any hydro-electric 
development is the generation of elec¬ 
tricity. We have six large hydro-electric generating plants in 
Alabama—on the Coosa and Tallapoosa Rivers. We operate 
them so as to not only produce an abundance of cheap elec¬ 
tricity, but also coordinate their operation in such manner that 
effects of floods on these rivers, and the Alabama River, 
which these rivers form, are less than they would be if the 
dams were not in place.

NEW YORK.. (Special).—Forty thousand persons an 
hour—visitors from every state and every nation- 
must he accommodated in comfort at but one of the 
entry ways to the New York World's Fair of 1939. ac¬ 
cording to arrangements the Fair Corporation is com¬ 
pleting to handle a maximum daily attendance of 800,- 
000. The artist's drawing, as reproduced above, calls for 
a magnificent double-decked entryway with under¬ 
passes. over-passes, pedestrian walks, bus terminals, 
comfort stations and bridge connections assuring com¬ 
fort while providing an area of architectural splendor. 

Shown is a ramp leading from the exposition ground* 
toward the I.R.T.-B M.T subway terminal, at a point 
where it is necessary to cross over the Long Island rail¬ 
road tracks and to avoid undue congestion of pedes¬ 
trian traffic Shown in the left foreground is a domed 
restaurant within a fountain basin and a concourse bor¬ 
dered by grown plane-trees, and, nearer, an open-air 
cafe and an information kiosk. Along the flanking wall* 
the artist has delineated the Fair’s world concept which 
looks to the building of a peaceful, happier World of 

Thrills and Excitement of 
The Jungle Pack Every 
Minute of ‘Tarzan Escapes’ 

Bro. and Mrs. W. FI. Haddock 
will attend the Sunday school offic¬ 
ers clinic in Montgomery Thursday 
and Friday. 

Mrs. D. N. Allen and son, Jackie, 
of Atlanta, spent Wednesday and 
Thursday with Mrs. Pat Raybun. 

Mrs. W. B. Ozley and son, Allen, 
and Mrs. Esse B. Cochran, made a 
business trip to Aldrich Monday. 

The long-awaited new drama, 
“Tarzan Escapes,” reuniting John¬ 
nie Weissmuller and Maureen O'¬ 
Sullivan in the third of the adven¬ 
ture pictures based upon the world- 
famed Edgar Rice Borough's char¬ 
acters comes to the Strand Satur¬ 
day and promises to be every inch 
as enthralling as its spine-tingling 

Set in its weird background of 
jungle exoticism with Tarzan, the 
superhuman, again making his 
breathtaking swings from vrec to 
tree, fighting off hostile natives 
and the forces of civilization alike 
with the beasts ol" the jungle his 
friends, the story of primitive exist¬ 
ence sends a thrilling appeal to all 
loyejs of adventure-, and romance. 

Its romance surrounded with fan¬ 
tastic perils, its plot dealing with 
the treachery of a civilized friend 
of- the primeval couple, the new 
story, aside from its romance and 
excitement, presents a powerful 
comparison of the morals of civi¬ 
lization with the primitive honesty 
of nature. 

The adventure in. the quicksand 
Valley of Death, the fording of the 
crocodile-infested river, the rescue 
by elephants of Tarzan imprisoned 

in a-cage, the attack of the giant 
vampire bats, thrilling episodes with 
lions and various other beasts took 
excitement in every foot of the 

Gorgeous scenic details add beau¬ 
ty to the thrills. The new jungle 
adventure was filmed on location 
in the mountains near Ventura 
where the entire company camped, 
worked under primitive conditions 
and actuaally lived the outdoor life 
of the Edgar Rljpe Burrough’s char¬ 

Weismuller of the magnificent 
torso again proves himself an auth¬ 
entic Tarzan and Miss O'Sullivan 
is once more delightful in the role 
of his mate who shares their curi¬ 
ous tree top bungalow. 

Mr. Glenn Elliott of the Univers¬

.NEW YORK, (Special).—included in the limited edition book of unusual 
size and beauty which the New York World’s Fair 1939 Incorporated has sent 
to state governors and, through diplomatic channels, to foreign governments, 
is the following text devoted to. . 

The Sovereign State* of the Federal Union 
George Washington, in declaring that the public felicity and pros¬ 
perity of America depend upon the firm union and the unceasing co¬ 
operation of the sovereign American States, divined the future The pros¬ 
perity and the greatness of these United States have arisen from the free 
and unimpeded circulation of ideas and products In the world's greatest 
consumer market. 

The Fair gives to each State the appropriate setting and opportunity to 
announce to the world its unique and indispensable contribution to 
America’s rich and colorful civilization. The Fair contemplates a Hall of 
States, in the imposing Government group and flanking the structure which 
the Fair looks to the United States to build, to house the exhibits 
of the forty-eight States, and the Territories Those wishing to participate 
more extensively wili in addition to their exihibits In the Hall of States, 
either erect their own buildings or obtain space to display their products 
and attractions in one or more of the exhibit zones. 

The State of New York has natu-

W HERE is the party? At Mrs. 

Smith’s on Walnut street and 
it looks awfully much as though 
the principals were caught by the 
candid camera. Luckily, how¬ 
ever, they’re perfectly groomed 
for their parts: 

Introducing Janet. 

Janet in her jumper (Pattern 
1996) is asking Mother which 
glassware to use. Her plaid blouse 
in taffeta makes her feel dressed 
up. Your own little girl may have 
this same ensemble in sizes 6, 8, 
10, 12, and 14 years. Size 8 re¬ 
quires 1% yards of 39 inch ma¬ 
terial for the jumper and IV 3 
yards for the blouse. 

Mother, the Hostess. 
Mother is the perfect hostess, 
calm and assured, because she 
knows her all-occasion frock with 
its sprightly crisp apron (Pattern 
1220) is becoming and appropri¬ 
ate. For house wear she made 
up this model in print. She is 
wearing here the crepe version 
and knows that it will be delight¬ 
ful for later on in cool black and 
white. It comes in sizes 34, 36, 
38, 40, 42, 44, and 46. The dress 
and apron in size 36 require 514 
yards of 39 inch material. The 
apron alone requires 1% yards.

Ohio, are fed by boatmen who row about streets, handing bread to refugees above the water line. 

Tank cars, normally milk cars, are shown being loaded with water in Chicago and started southward 
to the flood scourged sufferers in the Ohio and Mississippi valleys where water was so contaminated that it 
was unsafe for human consumption. 

Coast Guard Rescues Flood Victims 


Flood victims in coast guard boats shown arriving at Jeffersonville, 
Ind., across the river from Louisville, Ky., where they were placed on 
refugee trains and taken to safety further north. Floods on the Ohio 
and Mississippi rivers were the worst in the history of the country. 
More than 1,000,000 people were made homeless by the treacherous 
waters that ros'e over retaining walls, inundated cities and towns and 
covered rich farm areas. Damage of property exceeded half a billion 

Orphans of the Flood Find Refuge 

Refugee children from the flooded districts of northern and eastern 
Arkansas are shown asleep on the floor of a railroad station following 
their rescue. With millions of acres of farm land under water and count¬ 
less cities inundated, the Ohio and Mississippi valleys experienced the 
most devastating flood in history.

Experienced basketball men are 
paying little attention to recent 
screams about the zone defense 
ruining the game. One member of 
the rules committee points out that 
this type of defense is almost as 
old as the game itself and capable 
coaches always have been able to 
find a way to offset it without plead¬ 
ing for new laws to make things 
easier for them. . . Incidentally, 
here is a tip-off concerning the dif¬ 
ference in rules in various sections 
of the country. At a recent Butler- 
Indiana game in Indianapolis it was 
announced that play would be ac¬ 
cording to “Big Ten Rules.” The 
only way "Big Ten Rules” differ 
from other college rules is that the 
winning team takes hoim the ball. 

The New York American hockey 
team, who spent a recent week end 
playing in Atlantic City, still do 
not know whether the auditorium 
management was kidding them. 
Anyhow, the dressing room to which 
they were assigned was labeled 
“Chorus Room No. 2.” . . . Lome 
Chatbot, the goalie, is the only mem¬ 
ber of the Americans who wears 
spats. In New York that makes 
him a sartorial exception. In Mon¬ 
treal and Toronto, where he lives 
and works when not playing hockey, 
that makes him a smart man. You 
need protection in that cold weath¬ 
er. . . Joe Lamb of the Americans 
is such a good golfer that he finished 
third in the Ottawa city champion¬ 
ship last summer. 

Jimmy Mars, who toils in Madi¬ 
son Square Garden publicity depart¬ 
ment, was christened Vincenzo 
Marazza. Mayor LaGuardia hung 
the "Mars” tag on him. . . Joe Hig¬ 
gins, the income tax collector who 
looks so much like Jimmy Walker, 
gets plenty of play now when sports¬ 
men discuss the next Democratic 
Mayoralty nomination. . . Bob Cun¬ 
ningham, boxing and wrestling 
judge who was injured several 
weeks ago when a wrestler dived 
through the ropes and landed on 
top of him, wishes friends would 
visit him at the New York hospital. 

. . . Devotees of the sport might 
very well read “Squash Rackets,” 
the book newly penned by Johnny 
Skillman, who was pro champion 
in 1933 and 1935. . . Another book 
which will shortly hit the presses is 
“Fundamentals of Baseball,” by 
Moose McCormick. 

During the American Bowling 
Congress which will be held in New 
York from March 9 to April 30 each 
team will use a new set of pins. 
They are carefully weighed and 
for the first two weeks three-pound, 
four-ounce pins are used. At the 
start of the third week the weight 
is increased by an ounce. After 
four weeks the alleys are "normal” 
and pins weighing six pounds, six 
ounces are used. 


T ONG ISLAND university has 

' dropped plans for a gridiron 
comeback this fall. Instead the 
Blackbirds will continue to devote 
their best athletic efforts to winning 
basketball games ... Lefty Gomez’s 
interest in prize fights is not entirely 
due to that brawl he soon expects to 
have with the Yankees concerning 
his 1937 salary. He always has been 
a red hot boxing fan and reads every 
bit of available literature on the 
subject . . . Bill Tilden drinks tea 
with seven turnips of sugar in it 
during those rests between tennis 
games. Fred Perry’s favorite tipple 
at such times is orange juice. 

Big time hockey players are not 
exactly billing and cooing when they 
meet Bill Stewart these days. They 
say the Chief Referee techinally is 
a most proficient arbiter, but that 
he sets himself up too much as 
a supreme power and otherwise 
takes himself too seriously . . . 
Benny Leonard has abandoned, at 
least for the present, the notion of 
opening a new restaurant ir Madi¬

Ed Stevens, the automobile man

How to Ease 
a Cold Quickly 

tablets and drink a full 
glass of water. Repeat 
treatment in 2 hours. 

If throat Is sore, crush 
and stir 3 BAYER ASPIRIN 
tablets in % gloss of water. 
Gargle twice. This eases 
throat rawness and sore¬ 
ness almost instantly. 

Get Quick-Acting, Quick-Dissolving 
Bayer Aspirin . Take 2 Tablets 

The modem way to 
ease a cold is this: 
Two Bayer Aspirin 
tablets the moment 
you feel a cold com¬ 
ing on. Then repeat, if neces¬ 
sary, according to instructions 
in the box. 

At the same time, if you have 
a sore throat, crush and dis¬ 
solve three BAYER tablets in 
one-third glass of water. And 
gargle with this mixture twice. 

The Bayer Aspirin you take 
internally will act to combat 
the fever and pains which 
usually accompany colds. The 
gargle will provide almost in¬ 
stant relief from rawness and 
pain, acting like a local anes¬ 
thetic on the irritated mem¬ 
brane of your throat. 

Try this way. Your doctor, 
we know, will endorse it. For it 
is a quick, effective means of 
combating a cold. Ask for 
Bayer Aspirin by the full name 
at your druggist’s — not for 
“aspirin” alone.

DeMille Film 
Of U. S. 

Stirring Saga 

The genius of Charles B. DeMille 
is turned to his native America in 
“The Plainsman,” a tensely dra¬ 
matic and inspiring epic of America 
in the making, which shows at the 
Strand Theatre Thursday and Fri¬ 

Heretofore concerned mainly 
with periods in World History 
which marked the beginnings of 
tremendous changes through the 
rise of Christianity, the influences 
of ancient Rome, the pivotal meet¬ 
ing of the Eastern and Western 
Europe engendered by the crusades 
and other forces of equal import 
in world history, DeMille now turns 
his unique talents to the ten im¬ 
portant years between the end of 
the Civil War and Custer's dramatic 
stand in Little Big Horn, the de¬ 
cade that marked the beginning of 
Western expansion. “The Plains¬ 
man” is a fnasterful tribute to the 
men who made this possible. 

Famfcd Characters Recreated 

All the colorful characters' who 
were known and loved by America 
for the past two generations' come 
to life again in this pageant of em¬ 
pire-building. “Wild Bill” Hickok, 
masterfully portrayed by Gary 
Cooper; “Calamity Jane.’’ played by 
lovely Jean Arthur; “Buffalo Bill.’ 
enacted by James Ellison: General 
George A. Custer, played by 
John Aliljan, the famous Indian 
chiefs “Sitting Bull,” President Lin¬ 

coln and his wartime cabinet are 
included in this film. 

There are also hundreds of Chey¬ 
enne Indians, borrowed from the 
Tongue River Reservation. 

War Starts Story 
The story of “The Plainsman” be¬ 
gins with the end of the Civil War 
and the unscrupulous gun-running 
among the Indians engineered by 
arms manufacturers eager to get 
rid of their surplus stocks. Head¬ 
ing out of Leaven worth, the “Jump¬ 
ing off plaace” for the west is 
Cooper, as the colorful “Wild Bill' 
Hickok. The stage of Hays City 
is driven by “Calamity Jane.” The 
two fall in love but Cooper resents 
the girl’s familiarity with other 
men, and conceals his emotions. 

Custer’s Army Falls 
After Custer’s army is wiped out 
by the Indians “Cooper goes after 
Lattimer and AlcCall. They con¬ 
trive to make him a hunted man 
but he captures some of their team¬ 
sters. While waiting for the army 
to come up, Cooper engages them 
in a poker game. The climax comes 
with the arrival of the troops and 
a tensely dramatic scene between 
Cooper and Aliss Arthur, 

The massacre at Beecher’s Island, 
and “Little Big Horn,” where a 
whole U. S. Cavalry; regiment was 
wiped out by the Indians, have been 
faithfully reproduced. providing 
one of the finest batt’- scenes ev¬ 
er filmed. 


Alontgomery, Ala.—W. Taylor 
Boyd, State Commander of the Am¬ 
erican Legion, has issued an ap¬ 
peal to all posts over ttie State 
to join hands with the American 
Red Cross and other relief agencies 
in aiding the stricken families of 
the flood area. 

He urges the posts to set up 
headquarters, if they have not al¬ 
ready done so, and collect warm 
clothing,, blankets and non-perish¬ 
able foods. Before wearing appa¬ 
rel can be used it must be sorted 
and Commander Boyd suggests the 
posts collect these articles, sort 
them, and then contact their near¬ 
est Red Cross Headquarters for 
shipping instructions or see their 
local freight agent. 

The Department officers of the 
Legion are well pleased with the re¬ 
sponse the posts have already made 
in the way of cash donations, and 
any others wishing to contribute to 
this worthy cause are urged to send 
checks to Department Headquart¬ 
ers, Montgomery, Alabama.

Birmingham Dairy 
Cattle Top Output 

Birmingham Dairy Cattle Top State 
Output In December 

The highest producing dairy herd 
in Alabama during December is 
owned by R. B, Kent, Birmingham, 
announces F. W. Burns, extension 
livestock specialist. 

"This Jersey herd averages 568 
pounds of milk and 28.3 pounds of 
blitterfat per cow for the month 
and had twenty quality cows," he 
says. "They were fed a grain mix¬ 
ture of 200 pounds of ground corn, 
200 pounds of ground oats, 200 
pounds of cotton seed meal, 200 
pounds of brewer’s grains, 100 
pounds of ground velvet beans, 100 
pounds of soybean meal and 400 
pounds of 20 per cent eommmercial 
dairy feed. In addition they were 
fed silage and lespadeza hay for 
roughage.” \ 

There were 86 of these cows re¬ 
ported in the Birmingham, Alont¬ 
gomery Blaekbelt Dairy Improve¬ 
ment Associations for December. 
The Birmingham association report¬ 
ed an increase of 50 quality cows 
over the previous month. Quality 
cows are those that produce over 
800 pounds of milk or 40 pounds of 
blitterfat during the month. 


Last Saturday night, January 30, 
the Alontcvallo basketball team 
played the best game they have 
ever played in defeating Philips in 
Birmingham. At the end of the 
half the score was 8-8, but in the 
last half Alontcvallo chalked up a 
lead which was not threatened tin- • 
til the closing minutes of play. The 
final score was 16-13. 

The outstanding player for Mon- 
tevallo was David Lessley. The 
case with which he sinks long shots 
is uncanny, and more than once 
have these shots put Alontcvallo 
in the running. Not only is David’s 
shooting good, but bis floor work, 
probably shines above his shooting. 
"Red ” Confer is improving greatly, 
llis fine work has done much to 
bring up the standards of the team. 

On Tuesday, February 2, Monte- 
vallo played Columbiana; Alonte- 
vallo winning 15-10. 


Edwin “Red” Confer is the 
chosen player this week. Red 

played left halfback. As a half- 
pack it was his business to carry the 
ball, and he did a good job of it. 
Alontevallo's power play consisted 
of Red driving off tackle, and lie 
always supplied the ■ power when 

it was needed. In the Isabella 

game Alontcvallo bad tile ball in 
mid-field, then this power play was 
called for three times in succession 
and that was all that was needed to 
put across the touchdown. 

Red was largely responsble for 
the cheerful spirit of the team, llis 
cheerful smile and happy ways 

kept the boys from getting down in 
the dumps. 

Red started going out for the 
team in his Sr. year. He started 
his career as a tackle, but later 
changed to fullback. 

There he stayed the rest of his 
first year. This year he was 
switched to halfback where lie play¬ 
ed all the year and played a bang 
up game. In all these two years 
Red has not missed a single prac¬ 
tice. That would be a fine record 
for a boy who. lived in Alontcvallo, 
hut when he had to walk seven 
miles home after each juactice and 
still didn’t miss any, well we think 
that is mighty fine and \\ ,b that 
the other hoys would follow his ex¬ 








The Montevallo Retail Clerks

ing Tuesday night, February 2.

day last, a splendid series of ad¬ 
dresses by Dr. William A. Alexan¬ 
der, of Birmingham, everyone of 
us—young and old—should con¬ 
template surrendering anew his life 
to that which is highest and bes* 
in life. Continuing in the spirit of 
these meetings let us be in our

to God.

Post Office Moved 
To New Building 

The work of removing the local 
post office to the new building was 
begun on last Saturday afternoon 
by Postmaster, R. A. Reid and his 
efficient corps of assistants, and the 
task was completed late Sunday 
afternoon without any interruption 
in the service, or any inconvenience 
to the patrons of the office. The 
new structure was recently com¬ 
pleted at an approximate cost, in¬ 
cluding lot, building and equipment, 
of $61,000, and is modern in every 
respect. The commodious work 
room provides ample space for the 
dispatch of business and is well 
ventilated and lighted. Most all of 
the new equipment has already 
been installed, and the remainder is 
due to arrive in a very short time. 
Lock boxes range in size from the 
smallest to the largest drawers 
which furnish ample room for the 
largest packages and bundles. And, 
unlike the boxes in the old office, 
are provided with keys in lieu of 
combination locks. The new Fed¬ 
eral building ik indeed a credit to 
the town, and when all furnishings 
and equipment have been placed, 
we may well say, in the language 
of the poet, our new postoffice is 
“A thing of beauty and a joy for-,

Miss Sessoms Resigns 
As Welfare Worker 

Miss Elizabeth Sessoms, who has 
served as special children’s case 
wtorker in Shelby Qounty since 
March, 1936, has resigned to take 
a position with the Crippled Chil¬ 
dren’s Service. The vacancy made 
by Miss Sessoms will not be filled, 
due to the fact that the County is 
not able to give financial support 
to the Public Welfare program. 

The loss of the Children's Case 
worker is indeed a great loss, for 
much of the. good work which has 
been carried on with delinquent, 
dependent, and neglected children 
cannot be continued. Only those 
cases which are very urgent and 
demand immediate attention can be 

It is a great pity that work with 
children must be limited, for chil¬ 
dren's work offers the greatest pos¬ 
sibilities for constructive social 
work, for the prevention of delin¬ 
quency, dependency, and neglect. 
Many of the problems with which 
we arc faced today might have been 
prevented had w r ork with children 
received more attention in former 

The only way in which we can 
hope to fill the gap caused by the 
loss of this special worker is to rely 
on “human-minded” citizens and 
community groups to take a larger 
part in meeting the problems in 
their communities. We feel that the 
number of children's problems 
might be reduced if there were 
more children in school, if there 
were opportunities for wholesome 
and satisfying recreation available 
to more children and if there were 
greater economic and social security 
tor the larger percentage of our 
people. "Human-minded” citizens 
working individually and collective¬ 
ly can certainly aid the public wel¬ 
fare department in meeting the 
needs of our children.

Vivian Broome Wins Trip 
To Washington 

Miss Vivian Broome, of the 
Thompson High School at Siluria, 
has been proclaimed the "good cit¬ 
izenship” girl of Alabama, an hon¬ 
or given each year by the Daugh¬ 
ters of the American Revolution. 
The winner of the State-wide con¬ 
test in which many high school girls 
competed was chosen by lot and 
not by competition, it was explain¬ 
ed. Alternates were: Miss Lucille 
Paulk, of Opp High School, and 
Miss Virginia Montgomery, of the 
high school at Fairfield. 

This is the third year the Nation¬ 
al Society of'the D. A. R. has pro¬ 
vided for each state to send a pil¬ 
grim to Washington, to attend the 
congress of the organization in the 
Spring, when good citizenship med¬ 
als will be presented each girl, the 
ceremony to be in Continental Hall. 
Lucky Miss Broome will be the 
guest of the Alabama Society on 
the trip. 

While only one girl is chosen 
from each State, many gre being 
trained in patriotism and citizen¬ 
ship, it was pointed out. Every 
girl in senior classes of high schools 
throughout the United States is 
eligible to compete in the contest. 
By this nation-wide plan, besides 
the immediate result to young peo¬ 

ple, there is also the advantage of 
the National Society of the Daugh¬ 
ters of the American Revolution of 
an enlarged field for future develop¬ 
ment of leaders in the womanhood 
of the nation. 

The meeting at which the selec¬ 
tion of the “good ctizenship” girl 
was made was presided over Dy 
Mrs. Ira Virgin. Mrs. James C.i 
Bonner, of Birmingham, State 
chairman of good citizenship pil¬ 
grimage, spoke on the purpose of 
the trip. W. L. Spencer, of the 
State Department of Educaton, in 
the absence of Superintendent J. A. 
Keller, explained the method of se¬ 
lection and how the State Depart¬ 
ment cooperated with the D. A 1 . R. 
in the plan. He said there were 
more than 50 contestants from every 
section of the State. Mrs. Zebulon 
Judd, of Auburn, national vice-presi¬ 
dent of the D. A. R. and also vice 
president of the National Officers 
Club, gave an inspirational talk on 
training young girls for citizenship 
and future mothers of America. 
Following the announcement of the 
fortunate girl, Mrs. William L. 
Brown, of Montgomery, State chair¬ 
man of student loan funds, ex¬ 
plained the plan whereby some girls 
who were not selected may be eli¬ 
gible for, scholarships. 

Greta Garbo and Robert Taylor In 
Spellbinding Version of “Camille” 

It anyone can witness the love 
scenes between the inimitably glam¬ 
orous Garbo and the dynamic and 
hzfndsome Robert Taylor in "Ca- 
mlie,’ currently at the Strand The¬ 
atre, without considerable palpita¬ 
tion of the heart, he must be a 
callous observer indeed. 

For even beyond its magnificent 
production details, its strikingly 
beautiful settings, costumes and 
jiceuic backgrounds—even beyond 
the superb direction of George 
Cukor and the flawless acting of 
its stellar group of supporting play¬ 
ers—"Camille" stands out as the 
most poignant and stirring portray¬ 
al of the love of a beautiful and 
fascinating woman for the man of 
her heart that the magic of the 
screen has ever given its followers. 

Of all the glamorous roles that 
are so inextricably associated with 
the famous Swedish star none has 
ever attained the heights of her 
Marguerite iii “Camille.” She gives 
it life and emotional intensity. She 
sings, dances, laughs and even plays 
the piano! And so for the nuances 
between laughter and tears that 
this difficult role demands—well, 

it can only be repeated that only 
the incomparable Garbo could have 
essayed the role. It is without a 
doubt her outstanding triumph. 

Robert Taylor, as Armand, the 
lover, likewise gives a performancce 
that definitely places him high 
among the really distinguished act¬ 
ors of the screen. 1/ is a "smooth, 
compelling and highly romantic por¬ 
trayal and one that perfectly bal¬ 
ances the emotional intensity of 
the Garbo part. The work of the 
supporting featured players could 
not be improved upon—particularly 
as regards the performances of 
Lionel Barrymore as Armand’s 
father, Elizabeth Allen as Nichette, 
Jessie Ralph as Nanine, Henry 
Danjell as the Baron de Varville, 
Lenore Ulric as Olympe and Laura 
■Hope Crews as Prudence. 

“Camille” is a picture not to be 
missed. It is a picture upon which 
congratulations may be showered 
upon its producer, director, its 
stars and supporting players, its 
scenic and costume designers and 
on everyone who had a hand in 
making it the triumph photoplay 
that it is.

On February 10. Montevallo beat 
Clanton. On February 13 M. 11. S. 
licked Maplesville 35 to 20. On 
Tuesday, February 16, Montevallo 
closed its basketball season by play¬ 
ing tlie first team they beat this year, 
Vincent. The score was 30 to 7 
in Montevallo’s favor. 

« Football 

In continuing our review of grad¬ 
uating football players, Walter 
Weems, right halfback lias been 
chosen for this week. Montevallo’s 
first football team was organized in 
19.50. Then it was that Walter, who 
was in the fifth grade, first went 
out for the football team. He has 
been going” out for it every year 
since. Walter, or "Crip” as the 
buys call him. is one of the few 
who seem to he on the opposite side 
from lady luck. Rarely does he go 
through a season without getting 
some injury that lays him up for 
at least a week.

2:00 — 3:45 and 8:30 
3:40 — 6:40 and 8:25 

But on top of all these injurie*, 
Walter has proven very valuable to 
the team. His chief job is ball 
carrying, and lie has carried the 
hall over the goal line more than a 
few times. In the West Blocton 
game he went to the game in the 
fourth quarter and carried the ball 
over for a touchdown, the only 
touchdown for either side. 

Walter played the best game of 
his career against Ce'ntreville dur¬ 
ing this past season. He was run¬ 
ning especially hard and doing his 
share of the other work. 

Walter also divided the punting 
honors with Capt. Lee until he hurt 
his ankle. His shifting was particu¬ 
larly good. His type of shifting 
was adopted by most of the new 
halfbacks, and it has been generally 
accepted as the correct way for 
halfbacks to shift. 

Walter is just a Sr. IT this year, 
but he plans to graduate in the 
summer. His seven years of foot¬ 
ball is probably a record in Monte¬ 
vallo .but probably is not in some 
other schools-. Walter has made 
two letters by actually playing, but 
if he gets any letters for subbing 
for two years he will have many 
more. So you see Walter’s long 
and good record has done much for 
| the teams of Montevallo High.

General Motors Strike Ended, Both Sides Yielding- 
Opposition to President’s Supreme Court Plan 
Increases—Great Plains Drouth Program.

) OTH sides making concessions, 
the General Motors strike came 
to an end in what Governor Murphy 
of Michigan called "an enduring 
peace.” ‘Operations 
of the great corpo¬ 
ration had been par¬ 
alyzed for 43 days, 
and the losses to it: 
in business and to 
workers in wages 
have been immense. 
Partly through the 
skillful efforts of 
James F. Dewey,' 
veteran federal la¬ 
bor conciliator, John 
John L. Lewis l Lewis, head of 
the C. I. O., and other union leaders, 
and the officials of General Motors 
were persuaded to modify the defi¬ 
ant stapds they had maintained 
through eight days of negotiations 
in Detroit, and the governor was 
enabled to announce the settlement. 

Under the terms of the agree¬ 

1— The corporation recognized the 
union as the collective bargaining 
agency for those employees belong¬ 
ing to the union. 

2— The corporation and the union 
agreed to commence collective 
bargaining negotiations on Febru¬ 
ary 16. 

3— The union agreed to end the 
strike and evacuate all plants occu¬ 
pied by strikers. 

4— The corporation promised to 
resume operations in all strike¬ 
bound or idle plants “as rapidly as 

5— All employees are to return to 
work without discrimination against 

6— The union agreed that pending 
negotiations there will be no other 
strikes or interference with produc- 


7— During existence of the collec¬ 
tive bargaining agreement contem¬ 
plated, all opportunities to negotiate 
shall be exhausted before any other 
strike or production interference is 
attempted by the union. 

8^After evacuation of plants the 
corporation agreed to dismiss the 
injunction proceedings started by 
the corporation against the union or 
any members in Flint, Mich. 

• Secretary of Labor Perkins, 
•whose own efforts to end the strike 
were futile, was highly gratified by 
the settlement. She gave out a 
statement praising the leaders on 
both sides for their give and take 
spirit and complimenting Governor 
Murphy on his success. Probably 
considerable credit should be given 
President Roosevelt who kept con¬ 
stantly in close touch with the situa¬ 
tion and talked with the conferees 
by telephone from the White House. 

Views on President’s Plan to

Senator Byrnes—I’m for it. 

Senator Nye—I think the Pres¬ 
ident has hit upon a most ingen¬ 
ious method of speeding up the 
work of our tribunals. 

Senator Vandenberg—I am op¬ 
posed to tampering with the Su¬

reserved commendation, 

Senator Capper—I am certain 
ly opposed to increasing the num¬

the purpose of allowing the ex¬ 
ecutive during any one adminis¬

the Supreme court. 

Senator bale,—Should his rec¬ 
ommendations be followed, I can 
see no hope of an independent

a timely and happy solution of a 
perplexing problem.

pretty near the beginning of the 
end of everything.

posals for legislation that would 
permit him to pack the Supreme 
court have met with such wide¬ 
spread and determined opposition, 
even from many members of his 
own party, that it was suggested to 
him that he accept certain modifica¬ 
tions. These include appointment of 
Supreme court justices only when 
those over seventy-five do not re¬ 
tire, and limitation of the number 
a President could thus appoint dur¬ 
ing his term to two. His plan as 
submitted to congress would enable 
him to name six new members of 
the cfiurt if the present six justices 
who are over seventy do not re¬ 
tire voluntarily. 

Mr. Roosevelt announced to the' 
correspondents that he was quite 
aware of the controversy he was 
confronting but would not back 
down on his demand for the legis¬ 
lation as outlined in his message. 

It is probable that the President 
can get his measure through the 
house without great trouble, but a 
hot fight against it is certain in the 
senate. So far the Republicans in 
congress haven’t had much to say 
on the matter, for the Democratic 
opponents of the scheme are voci¬ 
ferous enough to suit the G. O. P. 
It is said there is a good chance 
that the senate judiciary committee, 
headed by Ashurst of Arizona, will 
report unfavorably on the measure 
in so far as the proposal for in¬ 
creasing the membership of the Su¬ 
preme court is concerned. The other 
parts of the President’s plan, de 
signed to expedite the work of fed¬ 
eral courts, do not meet with much 

Probably the scheme will be sep¬ 
arated into several bills; and indeed 
that already has been started, for 
Representative Summers of Texas, 
chairman of the house judiciary 
committee, introduced a bill provid¬ 
ing for voluntary retirement for Su¬ 
preme court justices with full pay 
at the age of seventy. This was 
passed quickly by a vote of 315 to 75. 

whole matter, said Mr. Roose 
velt, dovetails into the proposed six 
year public works program 

The great plains committee sug¬ 
gested for the federal government: 

1. A ten year program of addi¬ 
tional investigations and surveys. 

2. Continued acquisition of land 
in range areas with rehabilitation 
as the objective, 

3. Measures to increase size of 
farms too small for efficient opera¬ 

4. Development of water re 

5. Resettlement within and with 
out the region. 

6. Compensation to local govern¬ 
ments where federal land acquisi¬ 
tion results in shrinkage of the local 
tax basis. 

7. Control and eradication of in¬ 
sect pests. 

8. Exploration of possibilities for 
developing other resources, such as 
vast lignite deposits to provide al¬ 
ternative occupation for some of the 
people in the area. 

Similar action was suggested for 
states with the addition of sugges¬ 
tions for legislation to permit forma¬ 
tion of county soil conservation dis 
tricts, encouragement of co-opera¬ 
tive grazing associations,' revision 
of the taxing system to take account 
of land income and assistance to 
farmers in meeting water problems. 

For local co-operation the com¬ 
mittee suggested crop rotation, cre¬ 
ation of feed and seed reserves 
against dry years, conservation of 
moisture, supplemental irrigation, 
fuller utiliation of springs and 
wells, planting of trees and shrubs 
as windbreaks-and flexible cropping 
plans to permit adaptation of each 
season’s crop to the amount of mois¬ 
ture in the land. 

“Hot Water War” Leader 

“ QHAY’S REBELLION” and the 
O “Whiskey Rebellion” are the 
outstanding —examples of minor 
“wars” which somehow manage to 
get into our school histories. But 
most of them overlook the “Hot 
Water War” and its leader, John 
Fries. Yet he was a very important 
figure in the early history of our 
nation and more particularly in 1798 
when we were about to go to war 
with France. 

In order to raise money for an 
army to fight this war, if it came, 
congress enacted a direct tax law, 
known as the “house tax,”—20 cents 
per $100 on houses valued at $200 
to $500 and 30 cents on houses val¬ 
ued at $500 to $1,000. The value of 
the houses was determined by 
counting the number of windows 
and measuring them. 

In Pennsylvania especially was 
there resentment against this tax. 
When assessors went around to 
measure the windows on houses, 
the women threw open these win¬ 
dows and poured scalding water on 
the officials, hence the name “Hot 
Water War.” 

It as also called “Fries Rebel¬ 
lion” because the leader of resist¬ 
ance to collection of the tax was 
John Fries, a veteran of the Revo¬ 
lution (who had also helped sup¬ 
press the Whiskey Rebellion in 
Pennsylvania!) He was a traveling 
auctioneer and this occupation gave 
him a good opportunity to harangue 
the people and urge them to resist 
collection of the house tax. More 
than that, he raised a force of 
armed men who chased assessors 
from township to township, forcibly 
released prisoners, who had been 
put in jail for resisting the tax col¬ 
lectors, and in general kept the 
eastern part of the state in an up¬ 

Finally President Adams called 
on the governor of Pennsylvania to 
call out militia to suppress the riot¬ 
ers. Fries was captured and taken 
to Philadelphia to be tried for trea¬ 
son. His attorneys insisted that he 
was answerable only to a charge of 
rioting, but a federal jury found him 
guilty of treason and he was sen¬ 
tenced to be hanged. Then Benja¬ 
min Franklin Bache, editor of the 
Aurora, a Republican (Democratic) 
paper, and bitter critic of the ad¬ 
ministration, took up Fries’ case. 
He raised such a fearful row about 
it that it became a national issue. 
At last. President Adams was led 
to pardon Fries and after that the 
leader of the short-lived “Hot Wa¬ 
ter War” dropped out of sight and 
is’lost to history. 

The First “Muckraker” 

E ARLY one morning in the late 
1820s a comedy was enacted on 
the banks of the Potomac river near 

Dizzy Dean 

C onclusions of the great plains 
drouth committee were laid be¬ 
fore congress by President Roose¬ 
velt, the report being accompanied 
by a special message in which the 
President urged the development of 
a "new economy” in the vast area 
between the Alleghenies and the 
Rockies to .save the region from 
the effects of future drouths. The 

B ARCELONA, capital of the au¬ 
tonomous Spanish state of Cata¬ 
lonia, was bombarded by a Fascist 
warship, and the Catalan council of 
state immediately 
decreed a new mo¬ 
bilization to meet 
the threat of an in¬ 
surgent attack. It 
also ordered the 
strengthening of for¬ 
tifications and set 
up a superior de¬ 
fense council. 

Following the cap¬ 
ture of the impor¬ 
tant Mediterranean 
Gen. Franco coas t city of Malaga 
by General Franco’s Fascist troops, 
a general c%an up of loyalists there 
was started. Gen. Gonzalo Quiepo 
de Llano, rebel commander in 
southern Spain, announced over the 
radio that more than 150 leaders and 
military officers of the government 
had been arrested and executed 
after trial. He said an attack would 
soon be made on Valencia, the loy¬ 
alist temporary capital on the east 

France was vexed by the reported 
assistance given the Fascists by 
Italians in the taking of Malaga, 
and renewed her threats to inter¬ 
vene in behalf of the government 
unless Italy and Germany ceased 
their active support of Franco. 

The long drawn out siege of Ma¬ 
drid continued, but there was one 
important development when the in¬ 
surgents, attacking with infantry 
and tanks from the south, threatened 
to cut the highway to Valencia, the 
capital’s only line of communication. 

Washington which is without paral¬ 
lel in American history. Enter the 
first character: a swimmer, sans 
bathing suit or any other raiment. 
He is no less a person than the 
President of the United States, for 
i„ was the custom of John Quincy 
Adams to go for an early-morning 
swim in that historic stream. 

Enter now the second character: 
an old woman, poorly dressed, car¬ 
rying a huge umbrella, an inkhorn 
and quill pen and some paper. She 
marches out to where the swim¬ 
mer’s clothes lie on the bank and 
sits down beside them. The swim¬ 
mer sees her, hastily sits down in 
the water until only his head is visi¬ 
ble. “Go away! Go away!” he 

“Not until you answer some ques¬ 
tions, sir!” the woman replies. 

John Quincy Adams rages. He 
threatens. He pleads. But it’s no 
use. The woman not only refuses 
to budge but she makes him come 
closer to the bank (crouched down 
in the water, of course) so she 
can hear more plainly what he has 
to say. And thus Anne Royall, edi¬ 
tor of the Huntress (appropriate 
name, that!) and "Grandma of the 
Muckrakers” forced Adams to ex¬ 
plain to her his national bank pol¬ 
icy, then the most important pub¬ 
lic question of the day. It was one 
of the first Presidential interviews 
and undoubtedly the most unusual 
one ever given. 

But that was characteristic of 
Anne Royall. Left a poor widow 
when her husband, a Revolution¬ 
ary war veteran died, Anne Royall 
went to Washington to claim a wid¬ 
ow’s pension. While waiting to col¬ 
lect it, she bought an old printing 
press, hired a printer and began 
publishing a small weekly newspa¬ 
per which she called the Paul Pry 
Journal. In it she fearlessly printed

Holdout Technique 
of Cards, Yankees 
Provides Contrast 

T HERE probably are other ways 
in which the business heads of 
baseball’s two most efficient firms 
perform their daily chores. At this 
season, though, it is the manner in 
which they manipulate their hold¬ 
outs that provides the most enlight¬ 
ening contrast. 

Branch Rickey of the Cards is 
a prime exponent of the “let’s raise 
hell before . we sign the papers” 
school. Even when not blessed with 
such a gifted debating opponent as 
Dizzy Dean he is a firm believer 
in the benefits to be obtained from 
airing salary squabbles in press, 
news reels and any other available 
public forums. 

Ed Barrow of the Yankees long 
has been convinced that unbally- 
hooed negotiations provide the best 
■ results. Now and then—as during 
the later years of Ruth—Cousin 
Ed yields to the temptation of a 
fine fanfare of publicity during the 
weeks immediately preceding the 
signing of a contract. But the blath¬ 
er surrounding such yieldings only 
serves to convince him the more 
that regular methods are the best. 
Immediately thereafter he returns 
to the policy of offering a fair price. 

But the fact that such high-sala¬ 
ried notables as Ruth anil Dean 
usually are pretty 
close to a meeting 
of minds with the 
management before 
all parties start yell¬ 
ing in the papers— 
probably is the rea¬ 
son why few busi¬ 
ness managers take 
the winter furor se¬ 
riously. Several big- 
time clubs are noto¬ 
rious for paying pit¬ 
iful wages, but in 
general, the average 
is high. So, because an Eddie 
Roush comes along very seldom, the 
magates are happily fortified. 

Roush never could have proved 
his point as easily as a Hubbell, 
who might give evidence that the 
added customers at one Sunday 
game are sufficient to pay his an¬ 
nual salary. But Eddie knew he 
was worth $100,000. 

Once he held out most of the sum¬ 
mer before Cincinnati met his 
terms. At other times he may have 
remained away from spring train¬ 
ing merely because the shifting 
sands of Texas and Florida did not 
agree with his aging dogs. But all 
the while he knew he was worth 
$100,000 and since the days of the^ 
lamented Chris von der Ahe no club- 
owner has been willing to sacrifice 
a sum merely to humor a stubborn 
whim. So Eddie got his way. 

Apart from the Dean-Rickey ad¬ 
vertisement and one or two other 
carryings-on of similar nature this 
winter’s show of holdouts seems 
considerably below the usual bally- 
not par. Most of the boys—al¬ 
though as one who likes to see 
greedy and mismanaging owners 
clipped for extra dough now and 
then 1 make this statement sadly— 
seem to have as little heart in their 
demands as Hank Leiber did twelve 
months ago. 

Public prints reported the big out¬ 
fielder as threatening to coach base¬ 
ball at Arizona university rather 
than sign the contract offered by 
the Giants. Hank is a valuable 
young player and, even though the 
Giants’ terms seemed very decent, 
this is a world which favors a guy 
getting all he can. 

In the midst of his most violent 
protestations he made one mistake, 
though. He kept writing to friends 
in New York asking how the Giants 
were reacting to his demands. This 
definitely revealed a chink in his 
armor. So, having heard the gos¬ 
sip which may or may not have 
reached Horace Stoneham’s ears, I 
was not surprised to see Hank walk 
into a Pensacola hotel only a few 
days late. 

T HE girl who was to become 
the mother of George Washing¬ 
ton was something of a belle in her 
native colony, Virginia. Mary Ball, 
descended from a good English fam¬ 
ily, was called “the rose of Epping 
Forest” in her girlhood, Epping 
Forest being the name of the Ball 
homestead. Orphaned early, she had 
as her guardian George Eskridge, 
a wealthy Virginia planter. 

At twenty - two, Mary Ball mar¬ 
ried (on March 6, 1730) Augustine 
Washington, then a widower with 
two little boys. Her first-, child she 
named George after her old family 
friend. Five other children were 
born of this marriage, four of whom 
survived. When Augustine Washing¬

George Washington was still a 
young boy when he became pos¬ 
sessed of a great desire to be a 
midshipman. His mother had been 
half-hearted about this plan at all 
times, but finally (so the story goes) 
when his sea-chest was being car¬ 
ried down to the wharf by a porter, 
she refused to let him go. He ac¬ 
cepted her decision with good grace, 
and devoted himself to surveying 
instead. His activities in the next 
years often took him far away from 
her and gradually prepared him for 
the great role he was to play in 
American history. 

Mary Ball Washington was sixty-

Since communication was then so

One of her sayings was, “The moth¬

brave women.” The members of 
her household knew, though, that 
every day she went off by herself 
with her Bible to a quiet spot called 
Meditation Rock. 

At last Cornwallis surrendered in 
1781 and the Revolution was won. 
Ever mindful of his mother’s anx¬

They tried to hit back at her by 
having her tried as a common 
scold, but John Eaton, President 
Jackson's secretary of war, fur¬ 
nished bond for her (mainly be 
cause she had been an ardent de¬ 
fender of Peggy Eaton in the so 
cial war then raging). She changed 
the name of her paper to the Hunt- 
ress but she didn’t change its char 
acter and to the end of her days in 
1854 she was a crusading journal¬ 
ist—the “first muckraker.”

Don’t Neglect Them! 

Nature designed the kidneys to do ft 
marvelous job. Their task ia to keep the 
flowing blood stream free of an excess of 
toxic impurities. The act of living —life 
itself —is constantly producing waste- 
matter the kidneys must remove from 
the blood if good health is to endure. 

When the kidneys fail to function as 
Nature intended, there is retention of 
waste that may cause body-wide dis¬ 
tress. One may suffer nagging backache*, 
persistent headache, attacks of dizziness*

Stomach Gas

“The gas on my stomach was so bad

Adlerika acts on BOTH upper and

act on the lower bowel only. Adlerika 
gives your system a thorough cleans¬

system and that has been causthg gas 
pains, sour stomach, nervousness and 
headaches for months.

CHAPTER X—Continued 

“As a matter of fact, this was 
worse than carelessness. With that 
particular pistol, if the barrel is 
empty, the action stays half-open. 
The fact that it was closed should 
have warned me that there was /still 
a cartridge in the barrel. I was in¬ 
credibly stupid!” 

There was a moment’s silence. 
Then Jerrell said uncomfortably: 

“Decent of you to say that, Ned. 
But after all, if I hadn’t pointed the 
gun at Dan—” 

He added, in an incredulous rec¬ 
ollection: “I didn’t mean to, tried 
not to. I can’t understand it, ev¬ 
en now. It was exactly as if some 
one’s hand, on mine, swung the pis¬ 
tol toward Dan—” 

“If it had been empty, you could 
have done no harm,” Doctor Greed- 
ing insisted. 

Professor Carlisle looked keenly 
at the Doctor. “No one is—blam- 
able for an accident," he remarked. 
“This of course was an accident. 
Let it rest so.” 

And he repeated his question of a 
moment before. “You think he will 


“Why?” the older man inquired. 
“On what signs do you rely?” 

Doctor Greeding hesitated, shook 
his head, smiled. “I don’t know,” 
he said. “Instinct. A guess, per¬ 
haps.” He chuckled. “Or it may 
be that Ym relying on my luck. I 
was born under a caul. Professor. 
The old women say that’s a sign of 
luck, you know; and I’ve always 
been lucky, certainly.” 

Professor Carlisle sat down, al¬ 
most suddenly, as though he were 
tired. His eyes still on Doctor 
Greeding’s face, he filled his pipe 
and lighted it. So presently he 

“Born under a caul, were you, 
Doctor?” he repeated thoughtfully. 
And he said: “I remember you 
once told me some strange experi¬ 
ences of a friend of yours, who 
was also born under a caul.” 

Doctor Greeding felt his cheek 
flame; then the blood drained away, 
and he cursed his folly, his own 
loose tongue. There was no accusa¬ 
tion in the Professor’s tone; yet 
Doctor Greeding felt himself ac¬ 

“Yes, so I did,” he confessed 

Professor Carlisle puffed at his 
pipe, his old eyes stern and still. 
“Strange things do happen,” he said 
gravely, “—some things too dark for 
the human mind to contemplate." 
He met Doctor Greeding’s glance. 

‘I perceive,” he said, “that Dan 
and Nancy—” 

“Yes. I am much pleased," Doc¬ 
tor Greeding said hurriedly. 

“You do not—object?” the Pro¬ 
fessor asked. 

“No,” the other man assured him. 
“No!” And he said: “Strange 
things, yea. Dan’s recovery—I 
think he will recover—is almost 
like a miracle, for instance.” Some¬ 
thing like an appeal for mercy was 
in his tone. 

The old man said inflexibly: “Yes. 
If he does recover.” 

And at that, abruptly, Doctor 
Greeding turned away and went out 
through the billiard-room to where 
Dan lay. He questioned Mary Ann 
with a glance. 

“He’s fine,” she said. “Not much 
pain, and no temperature. Doctor, 
you mustn’t—doubt. He’ll get bet¬ 
ter." She smiled hearteningly. “He’s 
bound to. This is one of your mir¬ 
acles, you know.” 

“It’s already twenty-four hours,” 
he reflected. “Wound draining?” 

“I’ll stay with him for a while,” 
he suggested. "If you want to— 

And he did in fact stay close to 
Dan’s side during the days that fol¬ 
lowed. This was not all solicitude 
for Dan, It was in part defensive; 
since so long as he stayed near 
Dan—Who was conscious and ration¬ 
al now~he need not be alone with 
Professor Carlisle. 

There was in Doctor Greeding a 
passionate desire to avoid that wise 
bold man, whose shrewd eyes saw so 
much, who might be keen enough-to 
suspeet, and even to credit, the 
incredible. He perceived that ques¬ 
tions multiplied in the other’s mind; 
but so long as he himself stayed 
near Dan, who must overhear any 
catechism that might be attempted, 
Professor Carlisle could not inter¬ 
rogate him. 

And—Doctor Greeding had no an¬ 
swers ready for the old man’s un¬ 
asked questions; so he clung to Dan 
as a buckler and a shield. 

He and Mary Ann and Nancy 
shared that vigil; but he bore the 
greater burden. It was as though 
he poured his own life and strength 
into the hurt man. He seemed in 
fact visibly to fail while Dan grew 
stronger. For Dan’s strength did 
begin to return, his color to im¬ 

prove; and his spirits were brave 
and unsubdued. 

Doctor Greeding, by contrast, be¬ 
gan to look like an^ill man. Nancy 
paid him a heavenly tenderness. 
And Mary Ann entered with her in¬ 
to this conspiracy of gentleness to¬ 
ward the man who so visibly grew 
weary and drawn before their eyes. 
She said to him, once, at dawn: 

"You mustn’t—wear yourself out. 
Doctor.” And she added, under- 
standingly: “Father told me you 
blame yourself for Dan’s being hurt 
But that’s wrong. You mustn’t wor¬ 
ry. Grief and worry can make you 
ill, and Dan doesn't blame you. 
None of us do.” 

He said: “I wonder if that’s why 
Dan’s getting better. Because he’s 
not blaming me, not—hating me. 
Hate and anger are poisonous 
things, Mary Ann, They can de¬ 
stroy a man, if he harbor them.” 

She protested smilingly: “Nobody 
hates anybody here!” 

He said gently: “You’re a very 
fine woman, Mary Ann.” There 
was a question in his mind, but he 
did not ask it. There was no need. 
To any discerning eye, it was clear 
enough that between Mary Ann and 
Jerrell there was a bond which 
grew stronger in these days under 
the same roof together. Jerrell 
seemed younger each day; and 
Mary Ann wore radiance like a 
garment, and a happy certainty 
and pride. 

The second day after Dan’s hurt, 
there was a change in the weather. 
It grew warmer, and a hot haze ob¬ 
scured the sky, diffusing the rays 
of the sun. Dan suffered from the 
heat, as they all did; yet the day 
passed somehow. After dinner, Nan¬ 
cy and Doctor Greeding went out 
on the open terrace in front of the 
house, where a faint breeze stirred. 
The stars were obscured by the 
haze across the sky; and Nancy 

“We need a shower. Father, to 
clear the air.” 

He nodded, 
ably,” he said, 

ly so that he might not be dis¬ 

And he woke to peace, a content 
and ordered mind . . . 

Dan was fretful that afternoon. 
The heat irked him, and returning 
strength gave him sufficient ener¬ 
gy to resent it Nancy was dis¬ 
tressed by his mood, till Mary Ann 
jobilantly reassured her. 

“It’s the best possible sign,” she 
said. “When a sick man begins to 
be sulky and bad-tempered, you 
may know he’s getting well.” 

So Nancy was amused. The early 
afternoon she spent with Dan—Doc¬ 
tor Greeding was in his room, and 
she and Dan found themselves in¬ 
volved in one of those arguments 
without either a beginning or an 
end, which may arise between two 
people who are close to one anoth¬ 
er. He was flushed with something 
like anger when Mary Ann returned 
and found them so, and Nancy said 

“Mary Ann, you stay with him for 
a while. He’s unbearable! I’m go- 

“Tomorrow, prob- 
“It’s never uncom¬ 
fortably hot here for very long.” 

They stood side by side, her arm 
through his. “But I don’t think I 
shall ever like it here again,” she 

He was shaken. “No? Why, Nan¬ 

“I think partly because Dan was 
—hurt here,” she decided. “And— 
it can’t ever be the same without 
Mother. When Dan can be moved, 
let’s go back to Cambridge, Fa¬ 
ther. Sell the island.” 

“I wish you’d stay here with me,” 
he suggested. “For a while, for 
this last time—” 

She said, with the blind cruelty 
of youth: “I hate leaving you. Fa¬ 
ther. But—I want to be with Dan, 
always. Life’s so short! I know 
that now. We’ve so little time. I 
don’t want to miss a single day I 
might have with him!” 

“I shall be lonely without you 
Nancy,” he confessed. 

“I know,” she nodded. “And I’m 
sorry. It’s the way the world is, 
though, isn’t it. Father? No mat¬ 
ter how much I love you, I must 
go to Dan.” 

He assented gravely. “Yes. And 
I sha’n’t try to keep you from him.” 

She laughed, clinging to his arm, 
her voice deep and warm. “You 
couldn’t, ever,” she whispered ar¬ 
dently. “No matter how you tried. 
Nothing ever can.” 

He nodded, humbly, accepting 
this; and a little later they returned 

Doctor Greeding that night was 
unable to sleep, but lay with his 
eyes open, staring at the ceiling. 
Dawn found him with burning 
eyes. He went to swim, and found 
in the water peace and content¬ 
ment for a while. But later, after 
he had dressed again, the sultry 
heat settled down once more, smoth¬ 
ering and stifling him. He relieved 
Mary Ann’s vigil by Dan’s side, 
and saw that Dan was better. In¬ 
fection must almost certainly have 
set in before now, if it were to be 
feared at all; and Mary Ann point¬ 
ed this out. 

“His temperature’s normal,” she 
whispered. Dan was still asleep. 
“I think the danger is past.” 
Doctor Greeding nodded. “I think 
so,” he agreed. “It’s only a mat¬ 
ter of nursing now, of avoiding 

“I’ll see to that,” she promised, 
and left him. He recognized the 
fact that his task was done, that 
Dan would live. 

But with this miracle accom¬ 
plished, his life was left complete¬ 
ly empty now; and at the thought, 
great weariness oppressed him. He 
who all night had been unable to 
sleep, suddenly surrendered to deep 
slumber. He went to the couch in 
the billiard-room and lay down; and 
when presently Nancy came and 
found him there, she covered him 
over tenderly. He slept till almost 
noon, while the others moved quiet- 

“It’s the Way the World Is, 
Though, Isn’t It, Father?” 

ing swimming.” She spoke to Dan. 
“Don’t you wish you could? It will 
be so beautifully cool.” 

Dan growled, half angrily: 
“That’s right, make it tough for 
me. Go on, get out of here!” 

She kissed him on the forehead. 
"I’m going!” 

“Kiss me right,” he demanded. 
“Don’t peck like that.” 

“You don’t deserve it,” she pro¬ 
tested. “But—there.” And she left 
him with Mary Ann. 

She swam, then lay on the wharf, 
half-asleep. The afternoon was sti¬ 
fling hot; but to the northwest, 
clouds were banking, and she heard 
a far roll of thunder, and thought 
a shower was near, and was grate¬ 
ful for the approach of this .relief. 
After a while she saw her father 
come down to the beach and go into 
the water, and she called ironi¬ 
cally: “Beautifully cool, isn’t it?” 

“Great,” he agreed. He said: 
“Shower coming!” 

She nodded, and watched him 
lazily, through half-closed eyes. He 
swam slowly, strongly, out into the 
lake. He often did this; often swam 
from the island to the mainland 
half a mile away. That he should 
do so now was not remarkable; but 
she called: “Going across?” 

He did not answer, probably did 
not hear her. She thought of join¬ 
ing him for the long swim, but was 
too much at ease. 

The clouds yonder came racing 
toward them, a dark wall streaked 
now and then by lightning’s flame. 
She watched these flashes, thrilling 
to the beauty of them, waiting ar¬ 
dently for the slashing of rain across 
her body. 

Doctor Greeding swam straight 
away from shore, yet not with any 
purpose in his mind save to commit 
himself to the embrace of the cool 
water. Once or twice he paused, 
floating on his back, utterly re 
laxed, resting. The island, the 
world, was far away. Floating thus, 
he thought, suddenly, that Myra 
was here beside him; and this was 
absurd, because Myra had never 
been a strong swimmer, never ven¬ 
tured far from shore. Yet it seemed 
to him that she was here, smiling 
tenderly, her eyes full of the sub 
lime and forgiving love of which on 
ly women are capable. 

It was treacherously beautiful and 
comforting to think of her close to 
him; he turned on his side to face 
her, to speak to her . . . But she 
was not here. 

He heard Nancy’s halloo: “Are 
you all right, Father?” 

He shouted: “Yes, of course.’ 

“I thought I heard you call.” 

“No. I’m all right.” 

He could see Nancy standing by 
the springboard, looking toward 
him; his eyes devoured her for a 
moment more. Then he swam on, 
toward the other shore. 

Nancy watched him, his head a 
dark dot on the lake's mirror sur 
face, and she watched the approach¬ 
ing shower. A veil of rain ob¬ 
scured the farther hills and swept 
down to the lake and darkened the 
we er and raced toward her. It 
was a deluge, hiding everything. 
She saw it reach her father and 
conceal him from her eyes; and she 
stayed awhile there on the wharf, 
welcoming the cool downpour on her 
body, holding up her face to the 
sweet rain, opening her arms as 
though to a lover. 

The shower continued for half an 
hour; but long before it ended, she 
was almost chilled; and she went up 
to the house to dress. She was in 
her room when the rain ceased, 
suddenly; the shower moved away 
down the lake withdrawing like a 
curtain, like a walL 

It had swept away the hot, stale, 
stifling air which had oppressed 
them for so long. Then suddenly 
the sun shone, wetly, smilingly; the 
world was washed bright and clean 
and beautiful. Nancy had a great 
sense of well-being, of security. She 
came downstairs. 

Mary Ann and Jerrell were with 
Dan. She saw Professor Carlisle 
on the veranda, and went out to 

“This is better, isn’t it?” she said 

“Sunshine after rain,” he assent¬ 
ed. “Nothing more beautiful." Then 
he asked slowly: “Where is your 

She looked out across the lake. 
“He swam over to the other shore, 
I expect," she replied. 

He said, in mild surprise: "That’s 
a long swim.” 

“Oh, he often does it,” she as 
sured him. 

He looked at her thoughtfully. 
“You’re not — concerned about 
him?” he inquired. 

She smiled, shook her head. “Not 
in the least. He’ll swim back when 
he’s ready. I’m sure he’s perfectly 
all right!” And she went into the 
house to be with Dan. 

Professor Carlisle stayed there on 
the veranda for a while alone, look¬ 
ing out across the water; but Doc¬ 
tor Greeding did not reappear. So 
presently the Professor nodded, as 
though in assent to some remark, 
as though accepting the explanation 
of some matter which for a while 
had puzzled and disturbed him, and 
his brow cleared, and trouble left 
his eyes. 

It was in fact impossible, in the 
bright radiance of the sunshine, to 
believe that in this world so newly 
washed and cleansed, any dark 
blemish could remain . . . 

No trace of Doctor Greeding ever 
was found. He had vanished as if 
withdrawn by some superior power 
after he had served his purpose.

Calotabs Help Nature 
To Throw Off a Cold 

Millions have found in Calotabs a 
most valuable aid in the treatment 
of colds. They take one or two tab¬ 
lets the first night and repeat the 
third or fourth night if needed. 

How do Calotabs help Nature 
throw off a cold? First, Calotabs 
are one of the most thorough and 
dependable of all intestinal elimi- 
nants, thus cleansing the intestinal 
tract of the germ-laden mucus and 

toxines. Second, Calotabs are diu¬ 
retic to the kidneys, promoting the 
elimination of cold poisons from 
the blood. Thus Calotabs serve 
the double purpose of a purgative 
and diuretic, both of which are 
needed in the treatment of colds. 

Calotabs are quite economical; 
only twenty-five cents for the fam¬ 
ily package, ten cents for the trial 
package. (Adv.)

W. M. WYATT, PublUher 

Eddie Watson says that the great¬ 
est need of the town right now is 
a bus line connecting it with the 
I post office. 




Published weekly in the Masonic 
Building on Main Street. "Entered 
as second-class matter, April 1, 
1 S)3d, at the Post Office at Monte¬ 
vallo, Ala., under the Act of Con¬ 
gress, March 3, 1879.” 


The Times advocates a town im¬ 
provement project on Vine Street. 
We would like to see this street 
made open to tarffic from its in¬ 
tersection with Main Street at the 
new postoffice south to the Col¬ 
lege water plant. 

There are many obvious reasons 
why we advocate this improvement. 

At present, Vine Street is open 
from the Alabama College campus 
gate to Main Street at the new 
postoffice, two blocks. (It is open 
one block south of Main, but it is 
not passable.) 

Concerning the impassable block 
from Main to Mr. Muixey s corn- 
lielu, it mignt tie added tnat tins

used as a garbage dump lor a con¬

‘Man proposes, God disposes. 
That ancient adage can be aptly 
adapted to the problem of flood 

First flood control measure in 
this country was taken by New Or¬ 
leans in 1717, when a levee wq.s 
built. First Federal action came in 
1850, when Congress appropriated 
$50,000 for a survey of Mississippi. 
Since that time billions of dollars 
have been spent by various units of 
government in attempts to curb the 
destruction caused by great rivers 
on rampage. Since the great 1927 
flood alone, several hundreds of mil¬ 
lions of dollars have gone into 
dikes, leeves and resrvoirs. It 
was widly believed that the flood 
menace had at last been eliminated, 
at last so far as important centers 
of population were concerned. 
Then came 1937, and man-made de¬ 
vices again proved inadequate. 

As a result, flood control, past, 
present and projected, has again 
become a national issue, is engag¬ 
ing the attention of public men and 
engineers alike. 

Most flood control projects, as 
Nicholas Roosevelt writes in The 
New York Herald Tribune, “are 
dealing with results, not causes. 
They are seeking to curb the dam¬ 
age of the waters, not to curb the 
waters themselves.” If the waters 
are to be curbed, land now given 
to cultivation must be returned to 
grass and woods, in order to hold 
rain and prevent excessive run-off. 
Experiments have shown that 
where the run-off in a grazed, edear 
lot is nine per cent, the run-off in 
a similar watershed which is un- 
grazed and timbered will be as lit¬ 
tle as one-half of one per cent. 

Obvious question is, Why, then, 
have we spent our millions for 
dams and levees and reservoirs 
when we might have curbed the 
water at its source? 

In 1927, according to Time, army 
engineers pointed out that to re¬ 
duce a Mississippi flood one foot 
would require the holding out of 
7,000,000 to 11,000,000 acre-feet of 
water. If 8,000,000 acres of refor¬ 
ested land held back just one-half 
an inch more water, than would run 
off of cultivated farm land, a flood 

would be reduced a half an inch 
and no more. Similar objections 
were brought out by the army to 
the building of headwater reser¬ 
voirs—it was said that at least $1,- 
000,000,000 would be required if 
spent for this purpose, to do as much 
good as $300,000,000 worth of levees. 

This gives some idea of the mag¬ 
nitude of the problem. And the up¬ 
shot is, according to Turner Cat- 
ledge of The New York '1 imes, that 
it is now proposed to promote a 
coordinated, long-time program 
dealing with reforestation, up¬ 
stream control, prevention of soil 
erosion, etc., all measures which 
would steady flow of water to the 
sea. The evidence is now com¬ 
plete that our past activities have 
been too scattered to really solve 
the problem—we must adopt the 
scientific approach. It is estimated 
that at least 20 years would be re¬ 
quired to complete such a program. 

In the meantime, 270 different 
control projects have been autho¬ 
rized, at a cost of $300,000,000 by 
the Flood Control Act of 1936. Ihey 
will affect every state and be lo¬ 
cated in 31 states. They include 
reservoirs for the Merrimack River 
Valley, in Vermont and Massachu¬ 
setts; levees along the Susquehan¬ 
na ; another series of reservoirs in 
Pennsylvania, Virginia and Ken¬ 
tucky; levees along the upper Miss¬ 
issippi in Iowa, Illinois and Mis¬ 
souri; levees, reservoirs and debris 
basins in Southern California. 

eryonp. But the big thing is the 
proposal that would’ authorize the 
President to appoint an additional 
Supreme Court Justice for every 
Justice who is now on the court 
whose age is 70 or more. 

That has split party lines wide 
open. Leading Democratic papers 
have come out against it. A Demo¬ 
cratic bloc, under Senator Glass, 
has been organized in the Senate to 
fight the measure. .Influential Sen¬ 
ator Norris, who sees eye to eye 
with the President in most matters, 
has expressed his disapproval. 

It has long been known that the 
President has been considering va¬ 
rious plans for curbing the power 
‘of the courts to annul laws passed 
by Congress. Now the issue isUn 
the open at last. 

It was widely forecast that this 
Congress would be quiet and peace¬ 
ful, and would follow the Presi¬ 
dent's wishes with little opposition. 

But now the stage is set for one 
of the longest, most acrimonious 
and most important congressional 
battles in years. The cause is the 
President’s message on changes he 
would like made in our judiciary 

Certain phases of the message— 
such as the proposals to empower 
the Chief Justice to shift lower 
court judges about in order to ex¬ 
pedite cases, and to lessen the time 
required to take cases involving 
Constitutional questons from lower 
courts to the Supreme Court—will 
meet with agreement of almost ev-

To £ Make NEW friends 

Your telephone is a means of quick personal contact 
with those friends and relatives whom you do not visit 
as often as you would like, especially those who live in 
other cities. 

More and more people who are separated by distances 
are using “long distance” telephone service to keep 
friendships alive and to maintain family ties. The relief 
from anxiety, and the pleasure of hearing a friendly, 
cheerful voice, gives satisfaction and value which are 
almost priceless. 

Yet the cost of a telephone conversation between 
friends or relatives who are miles apart is surprisingly 
low. You can get an idea of the low cost of “long dis¬ 
tance” from the lists of cities and rates which you will 
find in the front section of your telephone directory. 

If the town you wish to call is not listed in the front 
of your telephone directory, just ask your “long dis¬ 
tance” operator. She will gladly quote rates to any point.

AH GRACE, before you go— 
^ you’re not in a hurry, are 
you—notice Mabel’s slip. » 

Isn’t that the one that you were 
telling the girls about at the Bid- 
Or-Bi club last week, Mabel? 

Yes, it’s my Sew-Your-Own and 
I’m real proud of it because it 
fits so smoothly. There’s no 
bunchiness at the waistline or 
hips—it’s fitted, you see—and yet 
there’s lots of room around the 
bottom. And do you know how 
long it took me to make it—no 
self praise, but exactly two hours 
by the clock. I simply followed 
the pattern’s instruction chart— 
as easy to do as to concoct a 
new dessert. 

Tie, Buttons, Hat to Match. 

It would be grand for a tailored 
dress like mine, wouldn't it, Ma¬ 

Just the thing! Are you off to 
the Civic League luncheon at the 
Hall? Your dress made up beau¬ 
tifully in that aquamarine, 
Grace. I’m crazy about it. The 
yoke-and-sleeves-in-one idea is 
swell and the black tie and but¬ 
tons to match your hat make you 
look like Mrs. Merriweather her¬ 

Now, now, cut the rave. You 
know that neat-but-not-gaudy is 
my motto. Bye, I’ll see you in 

So long . . . Anne, since you 
like my slip so much, I’ll be 
glad to help you make one like 
it, if you want me to. 

That’s lovely of you, Mabel, 
but would that sort of thing be 
right for a “Stylish Stout” like 
me? You should hear George 
when I call myself a “Stylish 
Stout.” He says I flatter my¬ 

That Slenderizing Effect. 

Leave it to the men! This slip 
would be especially good for you, 
Anne, because it’s fitted and, 
George or no George, you look 
stylish in that dress you’re wear¬ 
ing—but you DON’T look stout. 
The panel in front breaks the 
skirt line, and the jabot and col¬ 
lar do wonders for the “Buz- 
zum.” It would be grand made 
up in a flowered print for Spring, 

That very idea occurred to me. 
Why don’t we get together to¬ 
morrow afternoon and sew—are 
you game? Come to my house.

To Alkalize Stomach Quickly 

On all sides, people are learning that 
the way to gain almost incredibly 
quick relief, from stomach condition 
arising from overacidity, is to alka¬ 
lize the stomach quickly with Phil¬ 
lips’ Milk of Magnesia. 

You take either two teaspoons of 
the liquid Phillips’ after meals; or 
two Phillips' Milk of Magnesia Tab¬ 
lets. Almost instantly “acid indiges¬ 
tion” goes, gas from hyperacidity, 
“acid - headaches” — from over-in¬ 
dulgence in food or smoking — and 
nausea are relieved. 

Try this Phillips’ way if you have 
any acid stomach upsets. You will be 
surprised at results. Get either the 
liquid “Phillips” or the remarkable, 
new Phillips’ Milk of Magnesia 
Tablets. Only 25jf for a big box of 
tablets at drug stores.

Chic Hats With Chic Spring Suits 

i * % “ ~ 


A TAILORED suit season is pre- 
dieted, with interesting news in 
regard to blouse and accessories 
which, it is said, will be frilly and 
flattering and utterly feminine no 
matter how severely tailored the 
suit. A further important message 
is navy twills for the smartest 
suits. Also comes the word that 
beige will be a color factor this 

Of course chic suits call for chic 
hats and milliners were never more 
up and alert in answering the call. 
What with sailors, berets, bretons, 
pillbox types, callotes (those wee 
caps French milliners adore), hats 
a la Rembrandt or Rubens, shapes 
that turn definitely up at one 
side, and a riot of turbans with 
countless variations, it is going to 
be a most exciting millinery sea¬ 
son. You can see that from the 
very start. 

Then, too, the startling innovations 
that are taking place in the matter 
of hairdress are having a tremen¬ 
dous influence not only on the hats 
themselves but equally so on the 
Way we wear them. 

As to trimming, this is. to-be a 
feminine season, flowers, ribbons, 
bright colors, feathers, lace and all 
that, with veils of devastating co¬ 
quetry to give glamor to the occa¬ 
sion. There will be veils of every 
description from long scarf effects 
that drape dramatically about the 
shoulders as you see at the top to 
the right in the picture, to perky 
little crisp affairs as centers the 
group here shown. 

The models pictured indicate the 
far-flung scope of ideas that are 
influencing the new millinery pro¬ 
gram. The hat on the seated figure 
conveys the message that shallow 
sailors will be worn—welcome news 
to many women who always dote on 
this type of hat. This clever sailor 
tops an exceedingly smart and prac¬ 
tical ensemble of beige wool. It is 

taffeta in a soft brown with coral- 
rust grosgrain bands and bow. 
These rust and brown and coppery 
shades together with beige have 
been voted as high-style coloring. 

The young girl standing wears a 
five-piece ensemble of herringbone 
tweed. It is an ideal outfit for 
cruise and southern wear and to 
bring back north for spring. The 
general tone of the woolen is gray¬ 
ish pale blue (all blues are espe¬ 
cially smart just now) with multi¬ 
color flecks woven through it. Note 
that the cone-crowned breton is 
worn back on the head to show the 
youthful brush-off-forehead hair- 

The little pillbox hat as shown 
above to the right is a winning num¬ 
ber and in shiny black straw is 
proving a midseason favorite. The 
chiffon scarf-veil draped about it 
which is effective for afternoon is 
detachable at the back, leaving a 
trimly tailored hat for general 
wear. Another popular trim is a 
military silk tassel falling down 
over one side. 

For the utterly feminine model 
centered in the group three Amer¬ 
ican beauty silk roses are posed 
atop a tiny off-face toque that is 
based on the, cap fashion which is 
just now a reigning favorite in 
Paris. This one is of navy blue 
felt and is worn far back on the 
head in latest approved manner. 
The stiff flaring wide mesh navy 
veil is indicative of the types that 
will be worn this spring. 

Milliners are giving versatile in¬ 
terpretations of the breton. Cen¬ 
tered below is a new adaptation 
tuned to the new high headdress. 
It is of black milan trimmed with 
bluish violet belting ribbon. The 
suede gloves match the ribbons on 
the hat—which is well worth re¬ 
membering for colorful gloves are 
still tres chic.

Now that it is the fashion to get 
into print, it behooves milady to be 
carefully selective in choosing the 
right print for the right occasion. 
For formal gowns the logical choice 
is a handsome silk print with gor¬ 
geous huge florals spaced few and 
far between. The dinner ensemble 
pictured is of white silk crepe print¬ 
ed with exotic flowers. It has a 
matching bolero jacket with nich¬ 
ing to trim. 



Fashion places definite emphasis 
on stripes for spring and, summer. 
Stripes are as important for the 
evening mode as flor sports and day¬ 
time wear. 

Dine and dance frocks made of 
handsome striped crepe or taffeta 
or colorful metal weave are among 
the outstanding successes on the 
current style mode. 

For afternoon and informal din¬ 
ner events the jacket blouse fitted 
to perfection or the simple girlish 
over-blouse of gaily colorful stripe 
register among the smartest items 
of the season. 

Bold, bizarre stripes in Roman 
and candy-stripe variations, also 
novelty stripes that have flowers 
and fruits and other designs worked 
into the stripe are going big in the 
southern resorts. They are partic¬ 
ularly good in linens and cottons, 
and are made up into evening 
gowns, full length . beach coats, 
blouses, sports dresses and acces¬ 
sories of every description. 

Fur-Trimmed Suits With 

Coats to Match Popular 

Suitf with fur-crimmed, full-length 
coats to match are just as popular 
as they have ever been. A grand 
suit, with a jacket that is buttoned 
high in the neck, is being shown in 
blue, brown and beige herringbone 
tweed. The matching topcoat has 
a huge, notched beaver collar. An¬ 
other three-piece model, in a very 
vivid, blue nubby woolen, has the 
topcoat enhanced by a full-length 
stole collar of gray krimmer.

Depth Thermometer 
Shows “Hot Spots” 
Within the Earth 

Temperature Is Revealed 
by Melting of All oys 

Washington. — Scientists 
looking forward to the day 
when the earth’s insides will 
be tapped for heat and pow¬ 
er, have a new tool to aid 
them in locating the “hot j 
spots” below the earth’s sur-1 

It is a depth "thermometer” for 
taking the temperature thousands 
of feet underground. Ernest N. 
Merrill and George A. Young, both 
of Long Beach, Calif., are the in¬ 
ventors who have been granted a 
patent here* 

Oil Men Want to Know. 

From readings already obtained, 
scientists have been able to make a 
rough estimate of the age of the 
oldest rocks, and to infer from this 
result that the amount of heat which 
is being supplied to the earth from 
radioactive minerals may be much 
less than heretofore supposed. 

However, aside from the re¬ 
search, sub-surface earth temper¬ 
atures have a present day practi¬ 
cal aspect for the oil man. At¬ 
tached to a long steel wire, he 
drops thermometers down the wells 
as h-» drills deeper, pulls them up, 
reads the temperature. 

Alloys Tell the Heat. 

Bullet-shaped, the new thermom¬ 
eter, claimed to be more efficient 
than anything heretofore used, com¬ 
prises a water-tight metal case. % In- 
to this goes a metal box provided 
with many compartments. Through 
the bottom of the box in each com¬ 
partment and through its cover are 
small holes. 

Each compartment contains 
sharp edged plates of various al¬ 
loys which are the “mercury” of 
this thermometer. It is by noting 
which of the alloys have been melt¬ 
ed after the thermometer has been 
lowered into the bore hole of the 
well and raised up, that the under¬ 
ground temperature, is obtained. 

Chinch Bugs in Winter 
Quarters in Corn Belt 

Washington.—Chinch bugs 
are in winter quarters in 
“moderate to very large” 
numbers through central Il¬ 
linois, southern Iowa, north¬ 
ern Missouri, and eastern 
Kansas, states Dr. P. N. An- 
nand of the United States 
Department of Agriculture. 
Smaller hibernation-numbers 
are reported across Ohio al¬ 
most to the Pennsylvania line 
and south into Arkansas. 
The bugs live over winter in 
wayside grasses, ready to mi¬ 
grate to small grain crops as 
soon as the fields develop in 

Wholesale burning of fieldside and 
roadside grasses is not recommend¬ 
ed as a means for getting rid of 
them. It is not always effectual, and 
in the long run may do more harm 
than good by destroying cover need¬ 
ed by wildlife valuable to the farm¬ 
er. Changes in field planning, es¬ 
pecially planting more soybeans and 
other legumes, which chinch bugs 
do not touch, are suggested. 

Odd Statistics About 
Widowed and Divorced 

New York.—Widowed and 
divorced men are more like¬ 
ly, on marrying again, to 
marry spinsters than wid¬ 
owed or divorced women are 
to marry bachelors. 

These observations, which do not 
necessarily imply personal prefer- 
.nces, are based on a study of mar¬ 
riage data collected in New York 
state exclusive of New York City 
for the years 1932, 1933, and- 1934. 
Analysis of the marriage figures ap¬ 
pears in the statistical bulletin of the 
Metropolitan Life Insurance com¬ 

Divorced persons, more often than 
widows or widowers, take for sec¬ 
ond consorts persons not previously 

Divorced men who do not take 
spinsters for second wives are more 
apt to marry divorcees than wid¬ 
ows. Divorced women, on the con¬ 
trary, if they do not marry bach¬ 
elors are more apt to choose a wid¬ 
ower than a divorced man. 

Those who go in for many mar¬ 
riages are distinctly less likely to 
marry a single person than are 
those who have been married only 
once before.

County Farm Demonstration 

By A. A. Lauderdale, County Agent 



1. Q.—What is the value of les- 

A.—Lespedeza is the most gen¬ 
erally known pasture plant in Ala¬ 
bama. It is not valuable for soil 
improvement particularly in valleys 
of North Alabama. On badly erod¬ 
ed Piedmont and mountain soils 
that have been abandoned for 
cultivation, lespedeza frequently 
comes in and if allowed to grow a 
few years, restores the fertility of 
the soil. On fertilized moist soils 
lespedeza makes large yields of ex¬ 
cellent hay. 

2. Q. — Where will lespedeza 

A.—Lespedeza will grow on all of 
the soils of Alabama, except the 
lime soils of the Black Belt. On 
moderately fertile soils it makes 
good grazing but seldom grows 
large enough to be cut for hay. On 
poor sandy uplands it makes little 
growth and sometimes dies during 
dry weather in late spring or early 

3. Q.—What fertilizers should be 
applied to lespedeza? 

A.—At least 600 pounds of basic 
slag should be applied broadcast 
when the soil is prepared. If les¬ 
pedeza is occupying the land for a 
number of yc^rs, an application of 
1,000 pounds per acre of basic slag 
would probably be profitable. 

4. Q.—When should lespedeza be 
sown ? 

A.—Sow lespedeza the last of 
February or the first of March. 

5. Q.—How is lespedeza grown 
for hay? 

A.—Sow lespedeza in moist fer¬ 
tile soils for hay. It will not grow 
tall enough for hay on poor soils. 
Cut for hay when the plants are 
forming seed. Sow 25. to SO pounds 
of seed per acre on well prepared 
soil, or it may be sown on land 
that was planted the previous fall 
to one of the small grains. Run a 
drag harrow over the land after 
sowing to cover the seed lightly. 

6. Q.—How is lespedeza grown 
for pasture? 

A.—Sow 25 to 30 pounds of seed 
per acre on pasture land. Disk to 
scarify the surface of the ground. 
It furnishes little grazing before 

the first of June, but after that 
date it gives abundant grazing. On 
upland soils the growth is Usually 
small but produces good grazing 
during part of the season. 

7. Q.—Is it necessary to inoculate 

A.—Artificial inoculation of this 
crop is not necessary. 

8. Q.—What variety of lespedeza 
should be grown? 

A.—For pasture, grow common 
lespedeza. It always matures 
enough seed to reseed the land. 

For hay sow Kobe or Tennessee 
76. When cut for hay Kobe does 
not usually reseed. If this variety 
is grown for hay it should be 
sown each year. On moist fertile 
soils common lespedeza makes good 
yields of hay. 

9. Q .—How do you obtain seed? 

A.—Farmers interested in lespe¬ 
deza are urged to grow a few acres 
of this crop for saving a home sup¬ 
ply of seed. Seed has been scarce 
and expensive during the last few 
yeays. The seed can be easily har¬ 
vested and instructions for saving 
them will be furnished all farmers 
who desire to produce their own

Dr. Orr To Direct 
Summer School 

1937 SES910N ARE 

President A. F. Harman announc¬ 
es selection of Dr. M. L. Orr, a na¬ 
tive of Union Springs and now head 
of the educational department at 
’Alabama College, as director of the 
1937 Summer School. Dr. Orr is 
widely recognized as an educational 
leader in Alabama, holding member¬ 
ship on the advisory committee of 
the State curriculum revision pro¬ 
gram, and on the Board of Di¬ 
rectors of the National Progressive 
Education Association. He is a 
graduate of the University of Ala¬ 
bama, and holds the M. A. and Ph. 
D. degrees from Peabody College. 
His service at Alabama College ex¬ 
tends over a period of 15 years. 

Dr. T. H. Napier, director of the 
Alabama College Summer School 
since 1927, will continue his work 
on the campus as dean of the col¬ 
lege during the Summer months. 

Dr. Orr announces that the pro¬ 
gressive education program featur- 
ind demonstration and training on 
both the high school and element¬ 
ary levels and headed by Dr. Alice 
V. Keliher, will be offered again 
this year through the financial aid 
of an educational foundation. The 
first term will extend from June 
10 to July 21, and the second term 
from July 22 to August 25. 

Tentative plans are being made 
for a new type of non-credit short 
course designed ior teachers with 
degrees, and others not desiring 
credit. These courses will be for 
two weeks, and will provide spe¬ 
cialized instruction and demonstra¬ 
tion in such phases of teacher-re¬ 
sponsibility as selection and coach¬ 
ing of high school plays, teaching 
of news reading and writing and 
direction of the school paper, meth¬ 
ods of progressive teaching, and 
curriculum revision. Alabama Col¬ 
lege again will cooperate with the 
State Department of Education in 
its revision program by offering cur¬ 
riculum courses, a curriculum labor¬ 
atory developingj guidance materials 
for teachers, and a demonstration 
of the type: of teaching contemplat¬ 
ed in the core curriculum. 

Negro Farmers Meet 
March 26-27 

The negro farmers and home 
makers of Shelby County will hold 
a, confetence at Columbiana on. 
March 26-27. It is hoped by the 
leaders that this gathering will be 
of practical value to those attend¬ 
ing. Most of the period will be 
given over to actual instruction in 
the better methods of farming and 
domestic service. There will be, 
however, discussions and addrsses 
an increasing the attractiveness of 
rural life. The rural ministers of 
the county will discuss how the 
:hurch could be a vital force in rur¬ 
al reform. 

Fred Douglas Andrews, who js 
calling the conference, states that 
the sessions will be hid at the 
County Training School. Some of 
those who will make contributions 
are: H. Councill Trenholm, Presi¬ 
dent of the State Teachers Col¬ 
lege in Montgomery; Zelia V. Ste¬ 
phens, supervisor of negro schools 
in Shelby County; J. H. Campbell, 
irincipal of Shelby County Training 
School; J. R. Otis, head of the 
Agriculture Department, Tuskegee 
Institute; R. C. Mixon, Moderator 
af Shelby Springs Baptist Associa¬ 

There will also be cotnributions 
from Miss Mary Elizabeth Nolen, 
Home Demonstration Agent, Shelby 
County; Mr. A. A. Lauderdale, 
Farm Agent, Shelby County; Miss 
Nell Davidson, County Health 
Nurse, Shelby County; Dr. Hugh 
Nicholson, County Health Officer; 
Mr. J. L. Appleton, County Super¬ 
intendent of Education. 


We hope at a later date to thank 
our friends personally for their 
sympathy and kindness to us in 
these hours of sorrow. The com¬ 
forting words and prayers of Bros. 
Hawkins, Burns and Pearson, and 
the lovely flowers from our dear 
friends, made the last rites for Jack 
beautiful and peaceful. God bless 
you all.—The Johnsons.

Peace Program At 
Women s Club 

At the February meeting of the 
Business and Professional Women 
the subject of Peace was presented 
oy three College .students and lat¬ 
er discussed by members of the 

Miss Brownfield-presented to the 
fellow members the objectives of our 
national organization in policies oi 
peace, and indicated some of the 
national trends on matters of poli¬ 
tics and peace. She spoke briefly 
ol contemporary literature concern¬ 
ing peace that would be profitable 
reading. She then presented to 
the club members three young wo¬ 
men who are representative of a 
group of Alabama College students 
from all classes in college, who arc 
particularly interested in peace. 
They discussed- the subject from 
three aspects. Miss Emily Camp¬ 
bell spoke of peace as we see it 
in history, -showing the Christian 
principles and the Social philoso¬ 
phy. Miss Eulalie Postell spoke oi 
the development oi present peace 
programs in the light of the last 
few decades, stressing the waste of 
war. Elizabeth Donald spoke of 
present legislation designed to ef¬ 
fect peace, dwelling at length on 
the present neutrality bill now be¬ 
fore the present Congress. 

The college girls presenting the 
discussion won the warm approval 
of the club members for their way 
of delivering very able and inter¬ 
esting talks. Following the formal 
program, there was an interval oi 
time in which the group participated 
in a discussion of the many aspects 
of Peace that seemed particularly 
apropo to the earlier discussion. 

A number of prominent citizens 
of Shelby County met at Columbia¬ 
na Monday afternoon to plan a 
campaign to keep Shelby County 
legally dry. Mr. Luther Fowlet 
was chosen as chairman of the cam¬ 
paign organization, with Judge L. 
B. Riddle as vice-chairman. A group 
of citizens from various parts of 
the county will serve as committee 
to work with them. 

A mass meeting will be held <n 
the court house at Columbiana on 
Sunday afternoon, March 7, at 2 :30. 
Groups from all over the county 
will attend. The meeting will be 
addressed by Mr. Harry Denman, 
-&T Birmingham, if he can possibly 
get there. 

The bill as written is very vague 
in some places and in other places 
it is clearly contradictory. Some 
things are being said about it by 
the daily papers that are clearly 
intended to decieve those who arc 
on the border line. Some honest, 
well-meaning people are confused 
and are about to go contrary to 
their own convictions because of 
their own confusion. Every issue 
that is being stressed by the wets 
is a false alarm and is intended to 
deceive. People who want to act 
intigellently and sincerely ought to 
get all the information they can 
before voting.

What Shall We Do For 
The Boys of Montevallo? 

An Interview With Dr. Hallie Farmer 
By Donald Vaughan 

In a recent address to the Civic 
Club, Dr. Hallie Farmer, Town 
Council member and Alabama Col¬ 
lege faculty member, said some¬ 
thing about as: follows: 

“Montevallo, in the generally ac¬ 
cepted sense is a girls’ town. Its 
educational and recreational facili¬ 
ties .are chiefly devoted to the in¬ 
terests and needs of girls. But we 
have boys in Montevallo also. What 
are we doing for these boys? 
Montevallo is not to be censured 
for its interest in girls, to be sure; 
but the town should be aroused to 
its responsibility to and for boys 
who are growing up here.” 

Very naturally, I think, the boys 
who heard about the expression of 
Dr. Farmer, at once became in¬ 
terested in her statements. We hail¬ 
ed her reference to our interests and 
the things that interest us as pro¬ 
phetic of something which we hope 
for in our home town. 

We do not mind Montevallo being 
interested in girls. That is natural. 
Even boys sometimes find an inter¬ 
est in girls. But we must prick 

up our ears when we hear one ot 
the ability of Dr. Farmer rise up to 
champion the things that boys like. 

Seeking a further insight into the 
vision of Dr. Farmer, I screwed up 
my nerves for an interview with her 
on the subject. She very obligingly 
granted me the interview, and 
much to my pleasure, she summar¬ 
ized her remarks by this statement: 

“A well-rounded Boy Scout pro¬ 
gram is the first need of Monte- 
vallo’s boys." 

Continuing, she explained her 
former reference to the subject, “I 
had in mind the fact that there Is 
no organization of Boy Scouts in 
Montevallo. The churches do not 
offer any organized class work for 
boys and young men. There arc 
no recreation centers providing 
healthful recreation for the boys 
and young men of the town.” 

Of these things, which do you 
think should be undertaken first? 
I asked. 

“It seems to me that a well- 
rounded Boy Scout program is the

Mrs. Sarah Jane Acker Died Monday 
Night At The Age Of 98 

Mrs. Sarah Jane Acker, mother 
of Mayor Charles T. Acker, and 
widow of the late Dr. James Wilson 
Acker, died Monday night at her 
home here. Had she lived until the 
26th of March she would have been 
98 years old. 

Funeral services were conducted 
Wednesday morning at the Monte¬ 
vallo Baptist Church, by the pastor, 
Rev. F. B. Pearson. Burial was in 
the Montevallo cemetery. 

Surviving her are two sons, Dr. 
Charles T. Acker, Mayor of Mon¬ 
tevallo, and James Samuel Acker, 
of Prescott, Arizona; one daughter, 
Mrs. William Lyman, Washington. 

At 14 years of age Mrs. Acker 
united with the Baptist Church, of 
which she has been an active mem¬ 
ber since. She had a keen interest 
in church affairs, and only her in¬ 
ability in recent years prevented 
her from taking an active part in 
the same. 

She was born March 26, 1839. 
Before her marriage she was Miss 
Sarah Jane Caffce, daughter of 
Samuel P. and Eliza Caffee, of 
Bibb County. 

For 65 years she was the wife and 
companion of Dr. James Wilson Ac¬ 
ker, who "spent 35 years in the 
saddle, going up and down the 
mountains and valleys of Cherokee,

A new circle of the W. M. S. was 
organized at the church Monday 
evening. It will be called the 
“Mary Alice Boyd” circle in honor 
of Miss Alice Boyd, who was a very 
devoted member' of the church ana 
was interested in all its work. The 
new circle is made up of those who,

Mrs. Acker herself expressed it, "and

The Acker family is one of the 
oldest and best known in Alabama. 
Its historic record goes back to a 
coat of arms of original grant dat¬ 
ing from the first crusade, A. D. 
1096, borne by a Sir Knight Cru¬ 
sader, Johan Von Acker. 

The first Acker to settle in Ala¬

Peter Acker, a German immigrant, 
who settled in New Jersey about 
1750, where he married Jane Suth¬ 
erland, and about 1790 settled again 
in South Carolina. 

Joseph ’Ajcker was a soldier un¬ 
der Jackson in the War of 1812. He 
came to Alabama while it was still 
a territory. From him and his 
wife, Ruth Alexander Acker, have 
descended all the Ackers in Tus¬

Princeton has its Triangle Club, 
the University of Pennsylvania has 
its Mask and Wig Club, but Ala¬ 
bama College in Montevallo has its 
pride and joy in College Night. 
While all these college shows are 
similar in that they are original 
and are presented entirely by stu¬ 
dents, College Night, which marks 
the peak of enthusiasm at the state 
college for women at Montevallo, 
is a unique presentation, witnessed 
yearly by more than 3,000. This 
year’s performances are to be giv¬ 
en on Friday and Saturday nights. 

Because all students take an ac¬ 
tive part in College Night, the oc¬ 
casion can hardly be equalled by 
friendly rivalry and enthusiastic 
Competition. Outgrowth of a din¬ 
ing room entertainment given by 
the four classes in 1919, College 
Night is now a famous performance 
presented by two sides, the Pur¬ 
ples and the Golds, comprising the 
entire student body. Members of 
the sides are chosen by two lead¬ 
ers and two assistant leaders who 
are chosen by popular vote at mid¬ 

Two weeks are spent in writing 
the music and script for the stunt, 
impersonation, toast, pep song, and 
glee club arrangement for both 
sides. The preparations are made 
secretly, and two weeks of prac¬ 
tices are held behind closed doors 
until the actual presentation. On 
the second and last night of the 
performance, the winning side is 
announced by judges, each of 
whom is a recognized authority in 
his field. 

The subject matter and unusual 
treatment of the stunts, impersona¬ 
tions, and toasts reflect the ingenu¬ 
ity of the students, and the songs 
often reveal potential Schuberts 
and Gershwins. According to pre¬ 
dictions of both Golds and Purples, 
the performance this year should 
surpass all in former years. 

Purple leaders are Aeolian McRee, 
Greenville, assisted by Emily Mc¬ 
Lendon, Birmingham. The Goius are 
led by Aileen Holley, Northport and 
Martha Nicholson, Selma. 

Funeral For Mr. Jack 
Johnson Held Sunday 

The death of Mr. Jack Johnson, 
which occurred last Saturday, is 
universally mourned in Monteval¬ 
lo. He was a resident of this com¬ 
munity for 27 years, during wfyich 
time he contributed his part to¬ 
ward the cultural, civic, educational, 
and all other public interests. He 
was a friend to all who knew him— 
a friend to humanity indeed, wheth¬ 
er his acquaintances or not. 

Mr. Johnson was 71 years of age. 
He came to Montevallo 27 years 
ago from Faunsdale. For 21 years 
he operated the St. George Hotel. 

He served six years as Mayor of 
Montevallo, 1927 to 1933. It was 
during his term as Mayor that the 
city sewerage waterworks and 
street paving was undertaken and 

For some years past, since giv¬ 
ing up the management of the ho¬ 
tel, he had been conducting the 
Johnson,Dining Room. 

He is survived by his wife: Mrs. 
Ella Johnson; one brother, James 
T. Johnson. 

Funpral services were held at 3 
p.m. Sunday, the officiating minis¬ 
ters being .Rev. V. H. Hakwins, of 
the Acipco M. E. Church, Birm¬ 
ingham ; Rev. F. B. Pearson, of 
Montevallo Baptist Church, and 
Rev. O. R. Burns, of the Monte¬ 
vallo Methodist Church. 

Mr. Johnson was a man of quiet 
demeanor and unassuming in his 
attitude. He was not controver¬ 
sial, but on the other hand he pos¬ 
sessed stern individualism that was 
a product of his ability to think 
for himself clearly and concisely, 
and temper his opinions in justice 
to others. 


News Review of Current 
Events the World Over 

European Powers Agree on Blockade of Spain to 
Insulate the War—Farm Tenant Program— 
Supreme Court Controversy Grows. 


© Western Newspaper Union. 

S O FAR as the international non¬ 
intervention committee can do 
it. the war in Spain is now insulated. 
Representatives of 26 European na¬ 
tions agreed that no more volun¬ 
teers for either side in the civil 
conflict should be permitted to en¬ 
ter the Iberian peninsula, effective 
at midnight February 20; and they 
laid plans for a complete blockade 
by land and sea that would pre¬ 
vent the importation of any more 
men or war munitions. Only Portu¬ 
gal dissented, objecting to estab¬ 
lishment of frontier guards on her 
territory; Great Britain, France, 
Germany, Italy and Russia ig¬ 
nored the Portuguese protests and 
went ahead with the blockade plans, 
which are to be put into effect by 
March 6. 

The decisions were reached after 
France delivered a virtual ultima¬ 
tum to her fellow committee mem¬ 
bers to end their bickering and 
warned Italy she would not stand 
for “open invasion of Spain.” The 
French were quick to place guards 
at all strategic points along the 
Franco-Spanish frontier. 

The international naval patrols 
presumably will not have authority 
to stop vessels suspected of carry¬ 
ing arms and men to Spain, but 
will report ship movements to the 
committee for action and will place 
observers on the vessels to check 

Supposing this blockade to be suc¬ 
cessful, it may well be that the 
Spanish civil war will die of inani¬ 
tion. Then may be brought about 
that which the international com¬ 
mittee seeks—international media¬ 
tion between the insurgents and 
the loyalist government. 

For the present both sides are re¬ 
newing their efforts for decisive vic¬ 
tory. The fascists, still driving hard 
at the “life line” that connects Ma¬ 
drid and Valencia, also are attack¬ 
ing the capital itself again. Their 
airplanes made two night bombing 
assaults on the city and its envi¬ 
rons, killing a number of persons; 
and their artillery constantly shells 
the highways to Valencia, 
i The loyalist government, at its 
temporary seat in Valencia, took a 
new mandate of absolute power 
from all Popular Front parties 
and mobilized all available man 
power to oppose the insurgent 
forces. All military classes of the 
last five years were drafted for im¬ 
mediate war service.

BALDWIN’S government of 
Great Britain is asking for $7,500,- 
000,000 to finance its “war plan in 
time of peace,” and is meeting 
with determined op¬ 
position from the 
Liberals, Laborites 
and others in par¬ 
liament. These es¬ 
pecially object to 
the plan for en¬ 
largement of the 
nation’s land, sea 
and air forces by a 
$2,000,000,000 loan 
and increased taxa¬ 

Sec’y of Navy Commenting on 
Swanson the British naval 
construction program, Admiral Wil¬ 
liam D. Leahy, chief of naval oper¬ 
ations of the American navy, served 
notice that any foreign nations ex¬ 
panding their navies beyond the 
standards of recent treaties might 
expect that the United States would 
match their construction. He said 
.it was his understanding that this 
nation was definitely committed to 
the maintenance of a “navy second 
to none.” To maintain that prin¬ 
ciple, he declared, it would be¬ 
come necessary for the United 
States to build new ships if other 
powers did. 

The present United States build¬ 
ing program calls for start of con¬ 
struction this year on two new cap¬ 
ital ships. Great Britain already 
has laid the keels of two new craft 
and the program announced in Lon¬ 
don calls for the start, after April 
1, of construction of a third new 
vessel. When Britain lays a third 
keel, then this government is likely 
to start similar construction. 

I N A special message to congress 
President Roosevelt urged legis¬ 
lation to “improve the present in¬ 
tolerable condition” of 3,000,000 
farm tenants, presenting this four- 
point program: 

1. Action to open the doors of 
ownership to tenants who now have 
the requisite ability and experience. 

2. Modest loans, with the neces¬ 
sary guidance and education to pre¬ 
vent small owners from slipping 
into tenancy. 

3. The retirement by public agen¬ 
cies of land proved to be unsuited 
for farming and assistance to the 
families living thereon in finding 
homes on good land. 

4. Cooperation with state and lo¬ 
cal agencies of government to im¬ 
prove the general leasing system. 

Congressional leaders promised 
immediate action, and Chairman 
Jones of the house agriculture com¬ 
mittee said the Jones-Bankhead 

$500,000,000 farm tenant bill now be¬ 
fore congress would be made the 
basis for the new legislation. 

The President’s farm tenancy 
committee, headed by Secretary of 
Agriculture Wallace, recommended 
that congress make available “a 
definite sum each year for a num¬ 
ber of years” for a land-purchase 
program, but mentioned no definite 
figure. Wallace said, however, he 
thought Jones’ proposal for $50,000,- 
000 annual appropriation for ten 
years is “reasonable.” 

'T'HOUGH President Roosevelt 
persisted in his intention to force 

through congress his measure to 

"reform” the federal judiciary, 
law-makers who 
have been his warm 
supporters are com¬ 
ing out one by one 
in hot opposition to 
his plan to pack the 
Supreme court. 
Among them are 
Senator Bennett C. 
Clark of Missouri 
and Senator Burton 
K. Wheeler of Mon¬ 
tana, both leading 

Senator Clark Democrats. They 
studied the scheme 
carefully before issuing their state¬ 
ments. The announcements of these 
men was scarcely offset by a radio 
address by Attorney General Homer 
S. Cummings, dutifully defending 
the President’s plan. 

Senator Clark skid he was entire¬ 
ly in accord with the minor pro¬ 
posals in Mr. Roosevelt's scheme, 
but was totally unable to agree with 
the provisions for packing the Su¬ 
preme court. 

Then came Senator Wheeler, stal¬ 
wart radical, with a statement 
which it was reported he made pub¬ 
lic over the protests of the White 
House. He said in part: 

“I am, always have been, and 
will continue to be opposed to the 
usurpation of legislative functions 
by the courts; 1 am, have been, and 
will be opposed to usurpation of leg¬ 
islative and judicial functions by the 
executive branch of the govern¬ 

“There is nothing democratic, 
progressive, or fundamentaUy 
sound in the proposal advanced by 
the administration." 

Attorney General Cummings ad¬ 
vanced these two reasons for sup¬ 
porting the Presi¬ 
dent’s proposal: 

New blood should 
be injected into the 
judiciary in order 
that the Constitution 
shall be construed 
in keeping with the 
changing needs pro¬ 
duced by new com¬ 
plexities of national 

The congestion of 
dockets in the feder- 9 en ‘ 

al courts is largely Cummings 
due to the inability of aged and 
infirm judges to perform their share 
of the work. 

Investigation has shown, however, 
that the second reason is unsound. 

Commenting on Mr. Cummings’ 
speech, Senator Glass of Virginia 
said: “I think it indicates that the 
country is in infinitely greater need 
of an attorney general than of addi¬ 
tional judges on the Supreme court 
or of judicial wet nurses for six of 
the present members of the court.” 

Senator Minton of Indiana de¬ 
fended the plan in a radio address 
but probably did it more harm than 
good, for he frankly admitted the 
purpose of the administration is to 
change the personnel and views of 
the Supreme court, in order that 
President Roosevelt's New Deal 
program will be held constitutional. 

Other senators who came out 
against the President’s plan were 
Nye of North Dakota, radical Re¬ 
publican; Bone of Washington, 
Democrat; Burke of Nebraska, 
Democrat; and Van Nuys of Indi¬ 
ana, Democrat. On the other side 
were McAdoo of California; Thomas 
of Utah and La Follette of Wis¬ 

Senators Bone and Wheeler intro¬ 
duced a resolution for a constitu¬ 
tional amendment that would give 
congress the power to override Su¬ 
preme court decisions by a two- 
thirds vote of both houses, but only 
after a national election involving 
congressional seats has intervened 
so that the people have had a 
chance to speak on the issue. 

The American Federation of La¬ 
bor and Labor’s Nonpartisan league 
declared their support of the court 
packing scheme, and the National 
Grange expressed its opposition. 
Legislatures of many states adopted 
resolutions for or against the plan, 
most of them being in opposition. 

Mr. Roosevelt received several 
groups of senators,' some of whom 
are among those opposing the pack¬ 
ing of the Supreme court, and re¬ 
iterated his intention to push his 
plari through congress without mod¬ 
ification. He said the people had 
voted for a New Deal and were 
going to get it. 

R epresentatives of the son 
coal operators met with John 
L. Lewis, president of the United 
Mine Workers, in New York to start 
negotiations for a new wage and 
hour agreement for 400,000 miners. 
Mr. Lewis said to the operators: 
“There is no friction in our indus¬ 
try. Peace dwells in the coal fields. 
I hope this conference will be suc¬ 
cessful in working out a new agree¬ 
ment without loss of time to a sin¬ 
gle worker." 

Thereupon he presented the de¬ 
mands of the union, which were 
promptly dubbed “utterly impossi¬ 
ble” and "quite amazing” by 
Charles O’Neill, president of the 
Eastern Coal Sales corporation. 

Chief demands made by Lewis 
are: ^ 

1. A six hour day and a five day 
week in place of the present work 
week of 35 hours. 

2. An increase in daily wages 
from $5.50 to $6 in the north, and 
from $5.10 to $5.60 in the south. 

3. Time and a half for overtime 
and double time for Sundays and 

4. A minimum of 200 days’ em¬ 
ployment each year. 

The operators proposed a 40 hour 
week with no increase in wages.

The tragedy, first major accident 
during construction of the $36,000,- 
000 span, which is to open next 
May, was caused by a broken roll¬ 
er caster. The state industrial ac¬

was emphatically denied by Philip 
Hart, president of the construction

pointed to the desirable post of 
high commissioner to the Phil¬

year and with residence in a huge 
palace in Manila. Mr. McNutt is 
still considered one of the possibil¬ 
ities for the Presidential nomina¬ 
tion by the Democrats in 1940. It 
had been thought he might get a 
place in the present cabinet.

Washington.—It is undoubtedly 
one of the fundamental foundation 
stones of demo- 
The People cratic government 
Lose that where a civic 
right or privilege 
is accorded, the persons who are 
granted those rights necessarily 
have some duty to perform under 
those rights. It is well established, 
for example, that workers may or¬ 
ganize into unions; that those 
unions have the right to bargain 
collectively, which means that a 
committee representing the mem¬ 
bers of that union may speak for it 
in dealing with the employers, and 
it is a right undoubtedly of unions 
to call its members away from work 
on strike. I think there can be no 
debate concerning these three 
premises. But since these rights 
have been granted to workers and 
accepted by them on the same in¬ 
alienable basl as the right to vote, 
the obligations that go with these 
rights necessarily have been accept¬ 
ed by the workers. 

We have just seen a settlement 
of one of the great strikes of this 
decade and the return of more than 
one hundred thousand workers to 
the plants of the General Motors 
corporation. Immediately after 
Governor Murphy of Michigan had 
announced that General Motors and 
John L. Lewis and his Committee 
for Industrial Organization had 
reached an agreement, efforts 
surged and swelled in a movement 
on the part of each side to claim 
victory in the settlement. From all 
sources I have been able to tap, 
from every trustworthy observer of 
national affairs, I have obtained vir¬ 
tually the same story about the Gen¬ 
eral Motors—C. I. O. strike settle¬ 
ment. As far as I can see after 
digesting all of the opinions within 
my reach, it seems to me that 
neither General Motors nor John L. 
Lewis won. What is much more im¬ 
portant is that the American people 
lost by that strike and they are in 
• fair way to lose much more. 

The General Motors strike was 
one of the costliest ia history. I am 
told that the workers alone lost 
something like one hundred million 
dollars in wages, and, of course, 
the stockholders of General Motors 
likewise lost because during all 
those days, forty-four of them, that 
the plants were closed, no new cars 
moved into trade. That means that 
all the thousands of dealers and 
salesmen of General Motors auto¬ 
mobiles earned no income. 

• • • 

The truth about the settlement 
seems to be that each side was will¬ 
ing near the end 
Truth About to accept Gover- 

Settlement nor Murphy’s 
proposition for 
settlement as a face saving pro¬ 
posal. It is undoubtedly true that 
John L. Lewis would have been 
sunk without a trace and his move¬ 
ment to break up the American 
Federation of Labor and take con¬ 
trol of labor for himself would have 
been utterly ruined had there not 
been some concessions by the Gen¬ 
eral Motors officials. He apparently 
attempted to break up the A. F. of 
L. before he had sufficient union 
men weaned away from the parent 
organization and that is the reason 
why his position in the General 
Motors strike was so precarious 
from his personal standpoint. 

On the other hand, it is quite evi¬ 
dent as well that General Motors 
was forced into a position where it 
had to make concessions or be 
charged by the federal government 
with responsibility for bloodshed 
and destruction of property in 
riots. Governor Murphy acted 
throughout the strike negotiations 
under the flag of President Roose¬ 
velt, saying his movements were 
at the wish of the President. Gen¬ 
eral Motors did not dare attempt 
to run counter to the President’s 
commands because it could not 
withstand public sentiment that 
could and probably would be built 
up against it should it be publicly 
criticized by the President. 

And to support my statement that 
the settlement is a face saving 
agreement and that neither side 
won in it, it is necessary only to 
consider that this agreement will 
run just six months. It contains 
no elements of permanency nor 
does it show any signs of a basic 
understanding which will swing pub¬ 
lic sentiment to the Lewis faction 
of organized labor as distinguished 
from the American Federation of

Thus, there are many observers 
who feel that another crisis will 
arise along about 
Another the first of July 

Crisis and that in the 

meantime W i 1- 
liam Green, President of the Amer¬ 
ican Federation of Labor, will have 
built up a considerable amount of 
strength on his side of the factional 
fight What the future holds, there¬ 
fore, is difficult to guess. It can be 
said only that in the recent strike 
and in the controversy that seems 
certain to lie ahead. General Mo¬ 

tors again will be the goat and the 
public will pay. 

I have been wondering whether 
many people recognize how they 
are going to pay for the cost of 
this strike. I have mentioned ways 
in which they have lost by it and 
it seems equally clear that when 
the Lewis unions get through wit> 
th-r use of force, it is likely to bring 
about an increase in the cost of the 
automobiles' they produce. It is like¬ 
ly to go further than just automo¬ 
biles. There is a move on now to 
attempt something of the same sort 
of labor attack on the steel manu¬ 
facturers. If that materializes, it 
i. easy to see how widespread the 
increased costs will be and how 
consumers will pay in the end. 

This may seem to be an argu¬ 
ment against increased wages. It 
may seem to be a defense of steel 
boots that used to be worn by in¬ 
dustrialists and with which they 
trod upon defenseless labor. But it 
resolves itself into a question of 
justice and a consideration of the 
problem as it concerns consumers 
as well as workers. If there is 
anything in the theory that labor 
is entitled to a fair wage, there 
must be likewise some merit in the 
contention that the public which 
consumes the product of labor is 
entitled to an equal amount of con¬

Political leaders have been quick 
at all times in recent years to sit 
astride the neck 
Federal of business, es- 
Charters pecially big busi¬ 
ness. Corporations 
were held up as something to be 
despised, especially if they were 
large corporations. Lately there has 
been quite a definite movement for 
legislation in congress that would 
force corporations to have federal 
charters; that is, charters issued 
by the government at Washington 
which, therefore, could control such 
corporations with whatever regula¬ 
tions were deemed necessary. This 
legislation, it is true, has not ap¬ 
proached the stage wher. a pre¬ 
diction of its passage can be made. 
The point is, however, that it rep¬ 
resents the thoughts of a certain 
percentage of the people. The ques¬ 
tion of legality of such a statute 
obviously remains to be determined 
but it is to be noted that this prop¬ 
osition is simply another step in the 
movement to cast a stigma upon 
business, a move to make business 
appear immoral or criminal or gen¬ 
erally infamous. 

Business has found it advan¬ 
tageous to incorporate. It removes 
certain responsibilities from the in¬ 
dividuals joining in a corporation 
and adds certain commitments at 
the same time. Here again are the 
rights and counter obligations aris¬ 
ing with those rights and I think no 
one can dispute the fact that our 
nation has moved forward more 
rapidly because of the use of the 
corporation as a business entity. 

But I have been unable to fine 
an answer to the question why the 
federal government should take 
control by law of business corpora¬ 
tions without at the same time tak¬ 
ing control of labor organizations. 
Now, it is to be noted that labor 
unions have steadfastly avoided 
taking the step of incorporation. It 
is not true abroad where many la¬ 
bor organizations hold corporate 
charters just as would a business 

The fact that labor unions have 
not incorporated leads one to the 
presumption that the unions have 
felt such a step would hamper their 
activities. And, indeed, it might. 
For example, there .have been 
scores of instances where- labor 
unions, through their authorized offi¬ 
cials or bargaining committees, 
have signed wage contracts with 
their employers—only to ditch that 
contract subsequently without re¬ 
gard for its binding force. 

As labor unions are now or¬ 
ganized, they are very loosely knit 
associations and there is nothing by 
which the individual members are 
bound except their own will to per¬ 
form. In the case of a business 
corporation, for example, the stock¬ 
holders have invested money and 
obviously when the corporation is 
sued in court or accumulates any 
kind of liability the stockholders’ 
money in the corporation is avail¬ 
able to pay whatever obligations 
develop. Hence, the lack of a cor¬ 
porate organization on the part of 
a union removes all responsibility 
insofar as law is concerned from 
the unit into which the workers have 
organized themselves. 

The point is, after all, that the 
General Motors strike has demon¬ 
strated beyond the peradventure of 
a doubt that the national labor pol- 
-icies are utterly ineffectual and con¬ 
tain no consideration for the con¬ 
suming public. Labor, as represent¬ 
ed by the John L. Lewis faction, 
has shown its willingness to back its 
demands with force in disregard of 
law and it has failed to answer ihe 
responsibilities which it seems to 
me accompany the rights and priv 
ileges the nation accords it.

He Gave Us “Craps” 


W HEN Bernard Xavier Philippe 
de Marigny de Mandeville was 
sixteen years old. his father, who 
was Louisiana’s richest Creole 
planter, died and left his entire 
fortune to the wild and headstrong 
son whose every whim had been 
granted by the indulgent father. 
Wifhin two years Bernard’s guard¬ 
ian. finding him uncontrollable, 
shipped him off to England in the 
hope that life abroad might im¬ 
prove his behavior. 

But it didn’t. For young Marig¬ 
ny became even more dissipated in 
London than he had been in New 
Orleans and finally his guardian or¬ 
dered him to return home. The 
boy came back, bringing with him a 
new dice game, called hazard, 
which was then all the rage in Eng¬ 
land and France. 

This was at the beginning of the 
Nineteenth century and hordes of 
Americans were swarming into the 
capital of their newly-acquired Lou¬ 
isiana territory. The pleasure-lov¬ 
ing Creoles looked upon these ener¬ 
getic and unmannerly visitors with 
disgust and their dislike was fully 
reciprocated by the Americans. 
They regarded the Creoles as an 
effete, alien race and spoke of 
them slurringly as "Johnny Cra- 
pauds” (frogs). When they saw 
them huddle around a table play¬ 
ing Marigny’s new game of haz¬ 
ard, they called it “Johnny Cra- 
paud’s game.” 

But these Yankees soon found 
themselves fascinated by the game 
and taking part in it with the 
Creoles. Gradually they shortened 
the name to “Crapauds” and even¬ 
tually it became “craps,” the name 
it bears to this day. Meanwhile 
the man who had introduced it to 
this country was steadily losing his 
great fortune, little by little. Part 
of it went because these despised 
Yankees were better with the “gal¬ 
loping dominoes” than he was. Part 
of it went because he was given 
to making grand gestures—such as 
lighting his cigar with five and ten 
dollar bills twisted into "spills.” 

Eventually his fortune was all 
gone and this grand seigneur of the 
New World was reduced to the bar¬ 
est necessities of life in a tiny cot¬ 
tage, attended only by one loyal 
old negress. In 1868, then a feeble 
old man of eighty-three, he tripped 
over his own doorstep and died as 
the result of the fall. Thus pro¬ 
saically ended the life of the last 
great Creole gentleman. It had 
spanned the whole history of his 
state and city. Over it he had seen 
floating the flags of five nations— 
Spain, France, the United States 
and the Confederacy—an experience 
given to few, if any, of his fellow-

First “Father of Democracy” 

AiiLY historians wrote him 
down as a "scurrilous young 
journalist who yapped at the Father 
of his country” because when 
George Washington retired from the 
Presidency he printed in his paper 
a bitter attack on that chief execu¬ 
tive, even going to the lengths of 
declaring that “If ever a nation 
was debauched by a man, the 
American nation has been by Wash¬ 
ington.” But modern scholarship 
has revised that opinion and has 
shown that he and his grandfather, 
rather than Thomas Jefferson and 
Andrew Jackson, were the real “Fa- 
tl ers of American Democracy." 

His name was Benjamin Franklin 
Bache and his grandfather was Ben¬ 
jamin Franklin. At his grandfa¬ 
ther’s knee, in both America and in 
France, where he lived from 1-776 
to 1785, he learned the meaning of 
real “democracy.” The elder Ben 
may have preached the lessons, but 
it was young Benny who put them 
into practice. 

. He founded the Philadelphia Gen¬ 
eral Advertiser, later the Aurora, 
and in it he attacked Washington 
because Washington was the symbol 
of the Federalist faith, which, he 
was convinced, was standing in the 
way of the development of the dem¬ 
ocratic ideal in the new republic. 
He also attacked John Adams and 
that led directly to the passage of 
the Alien and Sedition laws under 
which statutes Benny Bache was ar¬ 
rested for libel but never prosecut¬ 

He was still fighting when Death, 
in the form of the yellow fever, 
ended his tempestuous career on 
September 5, 1798. He was only 
twenty-nine years old but he had 
labored greatly and accomplished 
much. For, in what modern his¬ 
torians called “the second Ameri¬ 
can Revolution,” Bache and his cru¬ 
sading newspaper had broken the 
power of the Federalists and 
snapped the link between them and 
England. Thereby he freed the new 
nation from the English idea of a 
semi-monarchical form of govern¬ 
ment. He made certain the victory 
of the new Republican-Democratic 
party which with the election of 
Thomas Jefferson began a real 
democratic rule in this country. For 
this he should be remembered rath¬ 
er than as a "scurrilous young jour¬

The agent in the small, dingy sta¬ 
tion at Glendale was, obviously, a 
little hard of hearing. Jim Fielding 
repeated the question in tones 
pitched to command attention. 

“Can you tell me how to reach 
the Vaughn place?” he asked, con¬ 
scious that the two or three strag¬ 
glers in the waiting - room were 
listening with interest. 

The agent lifted melancholy fea¬ 

“Three miles back country.” The 
agent peered through the narrow 
grating. "You expected?” 

"No,” Jim answered. “They 
aren’t expecting me.” 

“I was going to say,” the agent 
continued, “there hasn’t been any¬ 
body from the Vaughn place in here 
today.” He reached toward a tele¬ 
phone on the shelf beyond the win¬ 
dow. "it you should want to call—” 

“No thank you,” Jim said hasti¬ 
ly, forestalling complications. 

“Well, there’s a garage across the 
street.” The agent was determined 
to be helpful. “They run taxi serv¬ 
ice.” A wink lightened, grotesque¬ 
ly, the solemn cast of his features. 
“Don’t let Joe Tanner overcharge 
you," he said. “He don’t read the 
papers and nobody’s told him 
there’s a depression.” 

The stragglers laughed. Jim 
smiled. The warning, he thought, 
was an often repeated pleasantry. 
It was a compliment, too, perhaps, 
a complimnt not entirely inspired 
by his own prepossessing appear¬ 
ance. His destination, he surmised, 
had something to do with the mat¬ 
ter. The agent was disposed to be 
affable to a prospective guest at 
“Meadowbrook.” If he knew the 
facts of the situation—! Jim’s 
smile deepened. He thanked the 
agent again and walked out of the 
waiting room. 

The smile faded as the glare of 
early afternoon struck him full in 
the eyes. 

Three miles back country! Jim 
stood irresolutely on the narrow 
plank platform. The prospect was 
not encouraging. He glanced across 
the street where, in a forest of gas 
pumps, stood a sedan placarded 
TAXI. But the garage would charge 
him a dollar at least. He couldn’t 
afford that extravagance. 

A fool idea anyway! Jim leaned 
dispiritedly against a post in the 
shade of the jutting roof. Why had 
he thought that to find the Mac- 
Phersons would help him spiritually 
or materially? There was an sn- 
swer to that. The MacPhersons 
were all that remained of the deb- 
onaire world of his early youth 
which had vanished so completely. 

He was fed-up with his present 
existence, sick of trying to find a 
job, of sponging on his brother-in- 
law, of making himself agreeable to 
pay for his bed and board. The 
week-end just past had been the 
proverbial last straw. He’d thought 
that to find the MacPhersons might 
restore, in a measure, his confi¬ 
dence and self-esteem, might help 
him, ivmehow, to carry out one or 
another of the drastic decisions he 
had made in the Callenders’ guest¬ 
room last night. 

It wouldn’t of course. A damn- 
fool idea! Jim’s eyes glowered out 
into dusty heat from under the brim 
of his hat. He was as he was and 
nothing could alter the facts of the 
situation. There was no place for 
him in this new world of post-panic 
uncertainties. He was one of the 
lost generation, the boys who had 
left college in 1929. There were no 
jobs. The contacts he’d made led 
exactly nowhere. So what? 

He was too mercurial, itoo impul¬ 
sive, too—what was die quality? 
Well, too romantic, perhaps, Kay, 
his sister, was a hard-headed ma¬ 
terialist. She’d stood by him like a 
soldier. But she had no patience 
with the vagrant impulses which led 
him, from time to time, in varying 
directions. Kay set her course and 
steered by it with no deviations. She 
lacked imagination. What of it? 
She’d done very well for herself. 

Kay was right, of course. A grim 
smile touched Jim’s lips. Impulses 
were luxuries. He hadn’t thought 
of them in that light in the halcyon 
days before the panic. Then im¬ 
pulses had been the cocktails of life 
and had led to charming adven¬ 
tures. Or if following an inclination 
resulted unfortunately, there had 
been any number of people to res¬ 
cue him from difficulties, his un¬ 
cle’s lawyer, Aunt Emily, one of 
his legion of friends. All that had 
changed. Impulses were costly risks 
in the new order of existence. There 
was the impulse which had brought 
him here in search of the Mac¬ 

To Jim they were more than that. 
The gardener’s cottage at “White¬ 
hall” had been, in his boyhood, 
more friendly and exciting than the 

great formal house set in acres of 
velvet lawn. The memory of Mrs. 
MacPherson’s spice cake gave him 
a feeling of nostalgia. There was a 
sort of preserve she used to make, 
plum and orange together, spread 
thickly on freshly baked bread. An 
atmosphere of comfort and tart 
good humor had been her natural 
environment. She’d had the sharp¬ 
est tongue and the kindest heart in 
the world. 

MacPherson had taught him to 
play an excellent game of chess. 
He’d told rousing good stories, too, 
and let him putter around the gar¬ 
dens with a wheelbarrow and a 
spade. As he grew older, how often 
MacPherson had helped him out of 
scrapes and, outwitting his Presby¬ 
terian conscience, had whitewashed 
the accusing evidence of some 
youthful folly. The lectures the lean 
sandy Scot had delivered privately! 
Jim winced at recurring memories. 
If he’d been spoiled, it wasn’t the 
fault of the MacPhersons. 

They’d been fond of him and 
proud of him. He had parted from 
them with sincere emotion when the 
crash came, when Uncle James and 
Aunt Emily had gone to California 
and a mortgage company had taken 
over “Whitehall.” He’d promised 
to look them up. He hadn’t, of 
course. Not that he had forgotten 
them. He’d been occupied with 
the business of trying to find a job, 
with singing for his supper, with 
rediscovering Lenore. 

The MacPhersons had meant to 
retire. He’d been surprised and a 
little disturbed when, through his 
uncle's lawyer, he had learned that 
they were employed by people 
named Vaughn — T. H. Vaughn, 
“Meadowbrook,” Glendale. A card 
from Mrs. MacPherson last Christ¬ 
mas had confirmed the information. 
“Dear Jamie," she had written un¬ 
der a lavish sprinkling of holly 
Sprigs and tinsel, “Andy and I are 
wishing you’d come to see us.” 
Jamie! No one except the MacPher¬ 
sons called him that. The name 
woke sleeping memories. If he 
could be “Jamie” again— 

Sentimental idiot! The half-smile 
touching Jim’s lips widened into a 
derisive grin. It was only that— 
Well, the week-end had been hu¬ 
miliating. He’d been hurt and he 
was running to the MacPhersons 
for sympathy and comfort. A damn- 
fool idea! He was ashamed of him¬ 
self. To find them would be, at 
best, only a temporary anesthetic, 
scarcely worth the pains of walking 
three dusty miles. 

He was through with misleading 
impulses. No more romantic whims. 
He would take the first train back to 
town, pick up his bags at the club 
and go on to New York. Perhaps, 
if he made close connections, he 
would reach Roselyn in time for 
Kay’s party. At any rate, at the 
first opportune moment, he would 
ask Lenore to marry him. 

Jim lit a cigarette. Mental per¬ 
plexities lulled for the moment. He 
was conscious of physical discom¬ 
fort Hungry, that was it. He’d 
had nothing to eat since breakfast. 
There must be a restaurant, some¬ 
where in the village. He calculated 
the depressing state of his finances. 
Worse than he had_anticipated. He’d 
had no business to play red-dog 
with the Callenders last night. Such 
dissipation was for the opulent. 
Well, he could manage a milk-shake, 
at least, and a drug-store sandwich 
or two. 

The time-table gave him half an 
hour for refreshments. Jim left the 
station and strode off along the 
main street of the village. Not much 
of a town, he thought, chain-stores, 
a fish-market, an expensive looking 

grocery, a small brick bank with a 
Colonial facade. 

The village, Jim surmised, served 
as a base of supplies for the outly¬ 
ing estates. A post office painted 
olive green, a tailor shop, a bakery. 
The latest movies, anyway. 

The drug-store occupied a promi¬ 
nent corner location. Jim entered, 
grateful at once for the dim light 
after the glare of the street. The 
soda - fountain looked pleasantly 
cool. He seated himself and re¬ 
moved his hat. Food and something 
cold to drink—Lord, he was hungry! 

A head appeared at the level with 
the counter, a head foaming with 
yellow curls bound by a band of 
narrow ribbon. It hovered there for 
a moment and Jim heard from the 
obscure region behind the fountain 
a vexed exclamation. Presently a 
face appeared and then the slight 
rounded figure of a girl in a tea¬ 
room uniform of crisp yellow and 
blue. She had flax-blue eyes and a 
tilte;. nose and she looked across 
the counter with so cross an expres¬ 
sion that Jim was amused. 

“Hello,” he said and smiled. 

Jim’s smile was very engaging. 
The girl behind the counter re¬ 
sponded to it at once. Her lips 
cufved in a friendly grin: 

“Hello,” she said. “Sorry to keep 
you waiting.” 

“That’s all right. What were you 
doing, saying your prayers?” 

“Chasing lemons—and oranges.” 
Her apron, he saw, was filled with 
them. She began to arrange the 
fruit in a pyramid on the counter. 
“The darn things topple over a 
dozen times a day.” She breathed a 
sigh of exasperation. “But we must 
be decorated. The boss has fancy 

Jim felt his depression lifting. 

The girl behind the fountain 
topped the pyramid with a bright 

“Sorry to Keep Yon Waiting.” 

green lime, smoothed her apron and 
turned to Jim. “What will you 
have?” she asked. 

"A chocolate milk and a sand¬ 

“Ham? Cheese? Or—?” 

"Both,” he answered promptly. 



She smiled. 

“Okay. In a jiffy.” 

She busied herself behind the 
counter. Jim watched her deft ma¬ 
nipulation of a knife with a razor- 
edge blade. Cute, he thought, friend¬ 
ly, amusing. Her curls were syn¬ 
thetically blonde, of course. No 
hair, he was sure, in its natural 
state, was quite so glintingly gold¬ 
en. Her lashes were stiff with mas¬ 
cara and her mouth was a work of 
art sketched in raspberry lip-salve 
of an especially virulent shade. 

Apparently unaware of his scruti¬ 
ny, she glanced at him, a knife 
poised over open jars. Her eyes 
narrowed and crinkled. 

“As one blonde to another,” she 
asked, “mustard or mayonnaise?” 

Jim laughed. It was, he reflected, 
the first natural laugh he’d enjoyed 
since last Friday at noon. The at¬ 
mosphere at the Callenders had 
been strained. He’d spent the week¬ 
end smiling stiffly at Myra’s acid 
pleasantries, making loud noises of 
appreciation, far beyond their mer¬ 
it, in response to Dick’s tepid 
jokes. Singing for his supper . . . 


“I’m sorry,” Jim apologized. 

"Mustard or mayonnaise? That’* 
an important decision, isn’t it? I’ll 
compromise. A little of both if you 

His reply seemed to amuse her. 
She returned to her task humming, 
just audibly, a gay familiar tune. 
Funny kid, Jim thought. Kid? Well, 
eighteen or nineteen, perhaps.- What 
was her name? Gladys? Gertrude? 
Geraldine? Not that it mattered. 
Nothing mattered especially. He’d 
give his right arm to be interested 
in something again. Anything—a 
girl, a job, a dog-fight Life without 
vital interests wasn’t much fun. One 
might as well be a turnip— 

There must be something that he 
could do. He was confident, in spite 
of repeated discouragements, of his 
ability to get on in the world. He 
had had an expensive education and 
a fair amount of intelligence. He 
made friends easily. People usually 
liked him. He was healthy enough. 
He’d been voted, during his last 
year at college, the member of his 
class most likely to succeed. That 
was a laugh! 

“Hell!” he muttered half aloud. 

The girl placing a platter before 
him, glanced up. 

“Everything all right?” 

“I beg your pardon—Oh. fine!” 
Jim assured her. He contemplated 
the platter. “The sandwiches ar* 
beautiful. That’s a tasty arrange¬ 
ment of pickles and hard-boiled 

“I thought—” she hesitated. “You 
looked sort of sunk.” 

“I’m an actor,” Jim said. “Do¬ 
ing ‘Hamlet.’ That was a private 

“Honest?” Her eyes opened wide, 
then narrowed and crinkled. “It’s 
Mr. Barrymore!” she exclaimed. 
“Fancy my embarrassment! Can 
you forgive me? I’m a little near¬ 
sighted without my opera-glasses." 

Jim laughed, a deep pleasant 
laugh of genuine amusement. Sur¬ 
prisingly, he felt almost cheerful. 
He applied himself to the sand¬ 

"Anything else?” 

Jim glanced up from the remain¬ 
ing segments of sandwich. She had 
made things tidy behind the coun¬ 
ter and seemed about to disappear. 
The idea was depressing. To de¬ 
tain her, he asked, though he had, 
at present, no practical use for the 
information, “Can you tell me how 
to reach the Vaughn place? T. H. 
Vaughn, ‘Meadowbrook’?” 

The question caught and held her 
attention. It was obvious, at once, 
that she, too, was impressed by 
the name. 

The girl behind the fountain sup¬ 
plied detailed instructions. 

“South Valley road,” she said, her 
interest in Jim deepening percepti¬ 
bly. “Turn left here at the corner 
and again at the cross-road just 
past the first stretch of woods. You 
can’t miss the place. It’s a white 
house on a hill. Sort of old-fash¬ 
ioned—but pretty,” she conceded. 
“There’s a brook through the mead¬ 

“I assumed there would be a 
brook,” Jim said, “and one mead¬ 
ow, at least.” 

“Oh sure! That was silly, wasn’t 
it?” She had apparently abandoned 
any idea of disappearing. The 
Vaughn estate seemed to be an 
absorbing topic of conversation. She 
perched on a stool behind the foun¬ 
tain and regarded Jim attentively, 
her eyes glinting with secret amuse¬ 
ment. “You’re a friend of Cecily’s, 
I suppose.” 

Jim was unable to make an in¬ 
telligent reply. Who the devil was 
Cecily? He had let himself in for ex¬ 
planations. Why had he asked the 

The girl, however expected no re¬ 
ply. That he and “Cecily” were 
friends was an established fact,, Jim 
decided, so far as she was con¬ 

“I know somebody who won’t set 
off fire - works because you’ve 
come,” she added with an air of 
lively enjoyment. 

“Do you?” Jim asked, slightly 
startled. “That’s not a pleasant 

“You needn’t worry,” she said 
encouragingly. “You can handle 
him.” Jim felt that she was meas¬ 
uring the ample breadth of his 
shoulders, appraising, with admira¬ 
tion which she made no attempt to 
conceal, his six feet and an odd inch 
or so of flexible muscles and lean 
hard flesh. What in blazes? Who 
was‘“him”? A potential rival, per¬ 
haps. Jim was intrigued. 

“Are you sure?” he asked smil¬

Sorrow has spread" its deep shad¬ 
ows upon many a heart in Monte¬ 
vallo this week in the death of 
two highly honored citizens. Mr. 
jack Johnson, former Mayor of 
Montevallo, died last Saturday 
morning. Mrs. Sarah Jane Acker, 
mother of the present Mayor, Dr. 
Chas. T. Acker, died Monday night. 

The ties of friendship of these 
two deceased ones extended to 
practically every citizen.of the com¬ 
munity. Together we mourn their 
passing, and extend our condolences 
to the immediate families. 

Reluctantly we give up those

Judge PI. L. Anderton and Mr. 
W. I. Pitman, of Birmingham, spoke 
here Tuesday night in opposition 
to the state liquor law. The meet¬ 
ing was held at the Baptist Church, 
with a fairly representative group 
of local people in attendance. 

The speakers laid particular stress 
upon provisions of the proposed 
law which give the Governor power 
to appoint a Liquor Control Board.

Winter legumes should be turned 
when the green tops of hairy vetch 
will weigh 12 to 15 pounds, or Aus¬ 
trian Winter peas 15 to 20 pounds 
per 100 square feet in the average 
growth in the field, advises A. A. 
Lauderdale, County Agent. 

Growers who have never made 
measurements of the green growth 
should masure plots It) by 10 feet at 
several points, cut or pull the green 
vines about even with the surface 
of the ground and weigh the green 
tops from each plot . Several such 
measurements over the field will 
give a good idea of stage of growth 
that will furnish sufficient growth 
to turn. The legumes can be turn¬ 
ed with any good plow at this stage. 

Turning should not be delayed 
until the legumes have made extra 
big growth. The crop that is to 
follow may be delayed or drouth 
may come. After turning, delay at 
least two weeks before planting the 
crop that is to follow. 

Corn following winter legumes 
needs no further fertilization. Cot¬ 
ton following these crops should 
receive 50 pounds of nitrate of soda, 
or its equivalent, 400 pounds super¬ 
phosphate and 50 pounds muriate of 
potash at planting with an addition¬ 
al fertilization. 



Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Harvey, or 
Montevallo, Alabama, who were 
married 50 years ago yesterday 
in Alabama., celebrated their gol¬ 
den wedding anniversary with an 
..informal party last night at the 
home of the Rev. and Mrs. C. M. 
Samford, 634 North Ridgewood 
avenue. Mr. and Mrs. Harvey have 
been guests at the Samford home 
this winter. 

Mrs. Linnic Pratt Crowe, of Mon¬ 
tevallo, twin sister of Mrs. Harvey 
who attended her at her wedding 
50 years ago, preceded the couple 
down the stairs, while Mrs. L. E. 
Kemp played the wedding march 
at the piano. She stood with her 
sister again, as the Rev. Samford 
extended congragulalions to the 
couple, and spoke of their many 
years of wedded life. 

Mrs. Harvey, the former Miss 
Minnie Pratt, wore a gown of mid¬ 
night blue velvet, with corsage of 
yellow roses. Mrs. Crowe wore 
black lace over white satin, with 
corsage of sweetpeas. Refresh¬ 
ments were served at a table cen¬ 
tered with golden wedding cake and 
orange punch carried the chosen 
color scheme. Rooms of the Sam¬ 
ford home were decorated with var- 
ried spring flowers. 

The Harveys have six living child¬ 
ren, and flowers and congratula¬ 
tory telegrams were received from 
them, and many friends. An Infor¬ 
mal evening was spent, concluded 
with singing of old-time songs. Fif¬

were present, with Rev. and Mrs. 
Samford, at this affair.—Daytona

Montgomery, Ala. — With the 
Governor’s signature affixed to the 
2 per cent general sales tax and 
the voters preparing to harness and 
tax liquor after March 10, State 
Treasurer, John Wt Brandon and 
Comptroller Charley Lee breathed 
easily with the comfortable assur¬ 
ance that ' all was well in the mon¬ 
ey front.” 

Likewise, the' State's 17,000 school 
teachers ceased their fretting over 
the gruesome mutilation of their 
pay checks by Comptroller Lee's 
budget bludgeon by which they 
have sacrificed approximately $8,- 
000,000 by proration of school ap¬ 
propriations during the past three 

If the financial seers have guess¬ 
ed aright—and their severest critics 
charge them with modest reserva¬ 
tion and understatement — Alabama 
will not only be able henceforth to 
pay all obligations promptly and in 
full, but a sizeable surplus will be 
set aside for further ad valorem tax 
reductions and to meet future emer¬ 

As the Legislature cleared its 
decks for sine die adjournment Fri¬ 
day, February 26, a review of its 
work shows that every feature of 
Governor Graves’ 6-point program 
was put into effect. 

The Governor’s proposals con¬ 
tained in his formal ‘‘call” last No¬ 
vember were: 

First: To revise the revenue laws 
and to provide additional revenue 
for the schools and to enable the 
State, County and City governments 
to function adequately. 

Second: To provide for the pay¬ 
ment of all educational activities, 
experimental and extension services, 
out of the Alabama special Educa¬ 
tional Trust Fund and to relieve 
the General Fund of all such pay¬ 

•Third: To provide for an appro¬ 
priation from the General Fund to 
take care of any deficit in the 
Special Educational Trust Fund. 

Fourth : To provide for the ex¬ 
emption from ad valorem taxes of 
the state on homesteads, as defined 
by the Constitution and laws ot 
the State of Alabama. 

Fifth: To set up a Prosperity 
Tax Relief Fund, and reduce State 
ad valorem taxes. 

Sixth: To regulate the manu¬ 
facture and sale of spirituous, vin¬ 
ous or malt beverages through 
Slate owned and operated stores or 
other State supervision, and to pro- 


vide for a referendum ttiereon to 
the electors of Alabama.” 

In response to the executive sug¬ 
gestions, and in the order submit • | 
ted, the Legislature enacted (1) a | 
1)4 per cent gross receipts tax dur¬ 
ing late December, later to be re¬ 
placed by a 2 per cent general sales 
tax;\ (2) passed a series of appro¬ 
priation bills for educational acti¬ 
vities, experimental and extensive 
services out of the special Educa¬ 
tional Trust Fund, thus relieving 
the State's General Fund of all such 
payments; (3) appropriated $1,- 
500,000 from the General Fund to 
take care of any possible deficit in 
the Special Educational Trust 
Fund; (4) provided $2,000 home¬ 
stead exemptions to become effec¬ 
tive next year; (5) creating a pro¬ 
perty Tax Relief Fund into which 
all revenue surpluses shall be de¬ 
posited for further ad valorem tax 
reductions from time to time, and 
(6) submitted the question of pro 
hibition repeal or retention for de¬ 
termination of the electorate in 
county-wide (local option) plebis¬ 
cites March 10, and establishing a 
state liquor control system for wet 

In view of the State’s almost 
complete recovery from its pro¬ 
tracted financial ills, it was not sur¬ 
prising that in the last days of the 
special session, State employees and 
officials whose salaries were dras¬ 
tically reduced in 1933 sought to 
restore their old salary schedules. 

Though the House frowned on 
the proposal last week of killing 
a bill to hike the salaries of the 
State’s judiciary ‘which contained 
a ‘‘rider" to repeal the 1933 Lapsey 
Lusk pay cut bill. Rep. Charley 
Cox, of Chilton, took up the cause 
of the rank and file of State of¬ 
ficials and employes, and introduc¬ 
ed a separate bill which is now on 
the House calendar for considera¬ 
tion Tuesday. On consideration 
last Friday, the House passed the 
Ellis bill increasing the salaries of 
justices of the Supreme and Appel¬ 
late courts, Circuit Judges and So¬ 
licitors $1,000 a year, rushing the 
measui^ to the Senate. 

However, the Cox bill seems 
doomed because of the Governor’s 
disapproval. Previously the Gover¬ 
nor had plainly set forth his ob¬ 
jections, explaining that the pres¬ 
ent session of the Legislature was 
summoned to provde remedies for 
a financial emergency. He said he 
did not consider the plight of State 
employees “acute.”

Just Wait TSU You Begin Paying 
Sales Tax With Tokens 

By James C. Hutto 
Post Staff Correspondent 

Montgomery, Feb. 18. — Remem¬ 
ber what a bother it was figuring 
everything out in pennies when the 
“war tax” was back in '18? 

Well, it’s going to be worse now 
that the two pe rcent sales tax is 
on Alabama’s statute books. 

Penny-figuring will seem simple 
compared with the mental gymnas¬ 
tics non-mathematical-minded shop¬ 
pers will doubtless go through when 
they get to juggling such infini¬ 
tesimal denominations as mills. 

To make it easier—or maybe 
harder — the state will issue metal 
tokens in half-cent and one-mill de¬ 

If this system plagues your mind 
with more figuring to do and 
makes your pockets jingle unneces¬ 
sarily, it at least saves you from pay¬ 
ing 10 or 20 per cent tax on small 
purchases when the legal rate is 
only two. 

Illustration Offered 

For instance, if you bought a 
five-cent loaf of bread, without 
tokens you'd have to pay your tax 
with a penny — the smallest coin. 
That would make the tax figure out 
at the rate of 20 per cent — 10 times 
what you owed. 

But under the system Alabama 
will have you'll get back nine 
tokens in change when you pay 
your penny. They will be alumi¬ 
num disks, about the size of a nic¬ 
kel with a hole in the center. 
Each will be worth one mill, or one- 
tenth of a cent. 

The next time you buy a loaf of 
bread just pay the tax with one 
of the tokens. And so on until all 
nine are spent. Then you start 
over with a penny. 

The half-cent tokens — that’s five 
mills—will be just like the others 
except they’ll be made of brass. 

The tax becomes effective March 
1 and is due to expire Oct. 1, 1939 — 
if the next Legislature doesn’t re¬ 
new it. It replaces the one and 
one-half per cent gross receipts tax 
that was levied on retailers Jan. 1. 

Certain articles are exempt from 
the sales tax, among them. 

Corn meal, flour, salt-cured side- 
meat, coffee and sugar. 

Sweet milk and butter milk. 

All farm products when sold by 
the producer directly to the con¬ 

Cotton, cottonseed and peanuts, 
no matter by whom sold. 

Fertilizer, livestock and poultry; 
also all crates and boxes for ship¬ 
ping farm products to market. 

All Alabama-manufactured prod¬ 
ucts sold outside the state and 
those sold in the state in carload 

Sales of stocks, bonds or other 
evidence of debt. 

Insurance sold by companies that 
pay a tax on premiums. 

All transactions of state and na¬ 
tional banks. 

Cigaretts, gasoline, electricity, gas, 
water, phone service and all other 
items on which the state already 
collects a special tax. 

Sales of new automobiles tire 
subject to taxation at the rate of 
one-half of one per cent but used 
cars are exempt. On all taxable 
items except autos the rate is two 
per cent. 4 

All "legitimate” wholesale pur¬ 
chases are exempt. Retail sales are 
exempt when they are made by 
religious groups, fraternal orders, 
educational institutions or agricul¬ 
tural associations, provided such 
transactions are for the exclusive 
benefit of a group's own members. 

The tax is estimated to yield the 
state $6,000,000 a year. From this

Governor Designates 
“Wildlife Week” 

Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Galioway. of 
Boothton, spent the week end with 
Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Galloway. 

Mr. and Mrs. H. S. Gosper, of 
Trafford visited their daughter, 
Mrs. Teck Galloway, Sunday 

Mr. R. L. Griffin, Dr. M. L. Ur>- 
and Mr. A. C. Anderson were 
among the attendants at the con¬ 
vention of the National Educational 
Association held in New Orleans 
this week. 

Montgomery Ala.—Recognition of 
its economic esthetic and recrea¬ 
tional value is accorded wildlife 
natural resources of Alabama in a 
proclamation just issued by the 
Governor, Bibb Graves, setting aside 
the week beginning March 1 as 
"Wildlife Week," and Friday, 
March 5, as “Bird Day." 

Schools, organizations, groups 
and individuals are asked to observe 
these dates with appropriate exer¬ 

Just 30 years ago Alabama origi¬ 
nated the custom of setting one 
day aside to memorialize the use¬ 
fulness and beauty of our bird life. 
Since that time the idea lias spread 
until now all 48 states observe Bird 

In his proclamation. Governor 
Graves says: 

"Progress develops nobler senti¬ 
ment toward Nature. 'Just as the 
passage of time and the increase 
of knowledge demand improved 
housing and industrial conditions, 
so also they demand greater con¬ 
servation of wildlife resources. 
These resources add immeasurably 
to our economic prosperity and re¬ 
creational enjoyment. They de¬ 
velop in us a more profound sense 
of the infinite. 

“The economic and esthetic value 
of wild birds, animals, fur bearers 
and fish are .of tremendous value 
to all people of Alabama and con¬ 
stitutes one of the greatest of Ala¬ 
bama’s natural assets and provides 
the lover of field, forest and stream 
with a most healthful form of re¬ 

“It is not only the business of 
the State Government, through or¬ 
ganized channels of administrative 
authority, to conserve through pro¬ 
tection, restoration and rehabilita¬ 
tion all important species of wildlife, 
but such a program should have the 
whole-hearte'd support of every cit¬ 
izen of this State." 

Gaiety, Wit and Beauty 
Merge In Musical Hit 

A brilliant melange of music, wit, 
beauty and dancing, as effervescent 
as its title, and as charming as only 
a romance in gay Vienna can be, 
brought Fred McMurray, Gladys 
Swarthout, .Jack Oakie and a host 
of . other noted screen players to 
the Strand Theatre this Thursday 
and Friday in "Champagne waltz.” 

With Fred McMurray as the 
leader of an American “swing” or¬ 
chestra. and Miss Swarthout as 
the granddaughter of the musical 
director in a Viennese walzer palast, 
the music in “Champagne Waltz” 
covers the entire gamut of the light 
and popular music. Miss Swarth- 
out’s beautiful voice makes a real 
treat to the musically inclined of 
all shades. 

In addition there is some excel¬ 
lent dancing by America's premier 
ballroom team, Velo zan Yolanda, 
singing by Frank Forest, side-split¬ 
ting comedy in the Jack Oakie man¬ 
ner, and a really delightful love 
story between McMurray and Miss 

Americans in Vienna 

“Champagne Waltz” is the story 
of an American band leader, play¬ 
ed by McMurray, who goes to Vi¬ 
enna and captures the city with his 
“swing’ music. This plays' havoc 
with the business of the waltz pal¬ 
ace, operated by Fritz Lieber. Miss 
Swarthout, his granddaughter, at¬ 
tempts to remedy matters by going 
to the American consul to com¬ 
plain about McMurray. She meets 
him there and he poses as the con¬ 
sul. The two become friends and 
love blooms. 

She calls the consulate and is 
connected with the consul’s wife, 
who tells her the truth. She is 
heart-broken, but McMurray ex¬ 
plains that lie is in reality an ice¬ 
box salesman. They go to the jazz 
palace where McMurray introduces 
Oakie as the band leader. Oakie 
doesn't understand and blurts out 
the fact that the jazz’palace is to 
take over the old waltz palace. 
Biroken-hearted and aware of the 
whole truth at last, Miss Swarthout 
and Lieber leave the waltz palace. 
Remorseful, McMurray goes back 
to America. 

Bring Waltz Here 

Miss Swarthout and Lieber come 

to America and open a waltz pal¬ 
ace which becomes a sensation. One 
day Miss Swarthout meets Mc¬ 
Murray. He is down and out. They 
discover that the waltz and “swing” 
can get along very satisfactorily 
and the romance blooms again.

Year For Fords 

Dearborn, Mich., Jan. 14.—For 
the eleventh year in the past sev¬ 
enteen years, Ford Motor Com¬ 
pany enjoyed better than a “mil¬ 
lion-car” year in 1936, according 
to announcement today at the 
Ford home offices here. 

Tabulations just completed, the 
announcement said, revealed that 
in 1936 both world sales and world 
■production considerably exceeded 
the million dollar mark. Ford cars 
and' trucks sold throughout the 
world during the year totaled 1.- 
219,262 units. Ford world produc¬ 
tion in the same period was 1,194.- 
800 units, it was announced. 

Ford’s first “million-car” year 
was in 1920 when Ford world pro¬ 
duction reached a total of 1.074,- 
336 units. Subsequent “million- 
car" years were in 1921, 22, 23, 24. 
25, 26, 29, 30 and 1935. 

The hulk of Ford production was 
in the United States for domestic 
use. Canada production, includ¬ 
ing assemblies in Australia. India, 
Malaya, New Zealand and South 
Africa, totaled 60,282 units. Pro¬ 
duction in the United States for 
export plus production in plants in 
Europe, Asia and South America 
was 204,641 units, bringing the 
world production total for the year 
to 1,194,800 units. 

Ford cars are manufactured in 
four factories besides the Rouge 
plant at Dearborn, Michigan. 
These are : Dagenham, England ; 
Windsor, Canada; Strassburg, 
France; and Cologne, Germany. 

Ford cars are assembled in a 
total of forty-four plants over the 
world. Of these. 16, Including the 
great Rouge plant, are in the Unit¬ 
ed States, four in Canada, eight in 
Europe, one in Mexico, three in 
South America, one in Japan, four 
in Australia, four in India and Ccy- 
loy, and one each in Malaya, New 
Zeeland and South Africa.

Recently the business indicators 
have shown the effect of two ad¬ 
verse influences—strikes and floods. 
Both caused sharp reductions in 
consumer purchasing power, and 
both were felt throughout the en¬ 
tire industrial structure. 

Most strikes involved Pacific 
Coast maritime workers, and auto¬ 
mobile workers. These strikes have 
been at least temporarily settled. 
West coast shipping, tied up prac¬ 
tically 100 per cent for more than 
90 days, is resuming normal propor¬ 
tions. General Motors plants are 
again operating. But the labor out¬ 
look is still mixed. 

It is regarded as inevitable that 
more strikes will be called this 
spring arid fall. Objectives of two 
of these strikes will be the coal and 
i steel industries, which employ about 
800,000 men. At the present time, 
the soft coal mines are operating 
under a labor agreement effected 
between the operators and the Unit¬ 
ed Mine Workers. This agreement 
expires on the last day of March, 
and it is widely forecast that at that 
time the union will make demands 
the operators will refuse to meet, 
and a strike will follow. So far as 
steel is concerned, it has been the 
avowed intention of John L. Lewis 
to force the closed shop on the in¬ 
dustry, and it is said that he has 
his plans all ready for what may 
prove to he the greatest strike in 
recent history. 

As the U. S. News recently point¬ 
ed out, "Modern industry is now so 
integrated and inter-related that 
the troubles of any one part soon 
reflect themselves throughout the 
whole. Strike effects take on na¬ 
tional importance.” In other words, 
when a strike hits a big industry, 
such as motors, its dampening ef¬ 
fects are felt immediately through¬ 
out many other big industries—steel 
rubber, oils, textiles and transport. 
Car dealers run out of stock and 
must discharge salesmen. In a 
thousand communities trade de¬ 
clines are felt by grocers, drug 
stores, movie theatres, every com¬ 
mercial activity. Cumulative losses 
run up into the billions. These 

widespread influences of a general 
strike are regarded by some laboi 
leaders as an asset—they feel that 
public opinion, impressed by the 
biake put on normal prosperity, will 
throw its weights on their side to 
lorce a settlement with employers, 
l et the automobile strike settle¬ 
ment gave labor heads a great deal 
less than they asked for, is regarded 
by A. T. of L. President Green as 
a sethack of the working man. 

the influences of a natural dis¬ 
aster, such as the Ohio river iloods, 
are of course, similar. Factories 
and stores close and people must 
leave meir homes. Their purchas¬ 
ing power is almost entirely sxopp^u. 
Fust and most drastic etieccs, as a 
result, are felt by the retail trade 
industries. During and following 
the recent floods, tne large mail 
order houses reported serious drops 
in orders. However, retail trade for 
the country as a whole is manag¬ 
ing to stay above the levels of 1936. 
And it is of course certain that 
there will be an impetus to con¬ 
struction in the afflicted areas af¬ 
ter the waters recede and the ex¬ 
tent of the damage has betn deter¬ 

Lonsquence of these adverse in¬ 
fluences has been a recesion in the 
standard business indexes lately. 
Yet the general tide of industry has 
continued forward, if adjustment is 
made for catastrophes and seasonal 
influences. Items are as follows: 

Railroads : Carloadings are run¬ 
ning consistently ahead of the com¬ 
parable period last year. Outlook 
for business is good. Worst prob¬ 
lem faced by the industry is legis¬ 
lative—it fears that laws which will 
materially increase the costs of ope¬ 
ration without providing means for 
income to compensate, may be pass¬ 
ed by Congress. 

Electric Utilities: Also face a 
grave legislative problem, arc up in 
the air as to what Federal power 
policy will be in the future, flower 
consumption has been very high, is 
now declining somewnav, due to 
seasonal influences.: Summer elec¬ 
tric consumption, particularly in the 
domestic field, is naturally least of 
the year. 

Steel: Iron and steel institute 
says the industries 1937 construc¬ 
tion and equipment budget will be 
45 per cent ahead of 1936, totalling 
about $290,000,000. 

Prices: Cost of living ;s lidding 
close to recent levels, with neither 
important advances or recessions in 
sight. Commodity prices are like¬ 
wise reasonably stable, with drops 
in a few lines. Some experts look 
for sharp jumps in grain futures, 
due to a relatively small world crop. 

Profits: January dividend decla¬ 
rations were not extraordinary. A 
number of industries paid less than 
in the same period last year. Ad¬ 
vances were registered in such in¬ 
dustries as packing, food utilities, 
department stores and steel. 

The feeling grows in many quart¬ 
ers that the President may have 
done himself serious harm by his 
proposal for reorganizing the judi¬ 
ciary. More and more democratic 
Senators and Representatives arc 
saying “No!" to his advocacy of a 
15-member Supreme Court.
